Details on Valentine’s Hearts

details on heart

Yes, I’m sewing zippers around the edges, by hand. This is the first one I’ve done and I hope the rest are neater. I either don’t want to see the stitches at all or I’d like them to become a part of the design. When sewing the zipper teeth on you have to loop the thread around every single tiny zipper tooth. I’m finding my hands are cramping from having to pinch the zipper so tightly to the heart so things don’t move around. I might experiment using pins to hold it in place…but don’t you love the effect?! There’s more to come!

Happy Crafting!!!

Girl, I don't know how you can sew those teeny tiny little stitches. WOW!!
They will be beautiful!!
Hey, I'm going to work out until 9ish and then I'll come over to see you. At least that's my plan, if it changes I'll give you a call. I have to be in town by 10:30 so we'll have time to chatter. Plus I need a hug.
