RAINBOW SOCK HEARTS

Who said that Valentine's day has to be red or pink? Why not make rainbow-coloured hearts out of ....


your lonely unpaired socks.


Here is what you will need for the project:
  • unpaired coloured socks (or if like me, you only wear black socks get a couple of extra coloured pairs on your next shopping trip)
  • heart shaped template
  • thread and needle if sewing by hand.  I am sure this project could be done with a sewing machine if you prefer
  • filler - you can use soft polyfil or, for a more natural alternative, use rice


Once your supplies are gathered, simply cut out 2 heart shapes using the template. Put heart pieces right side together and stitch around using a backstitch (here is a link to PurlBee's backstitch tutorial). Leave a small opening on the side of the heart.


Turn the heart inside out and stuff with filler. Stitch the opening with a blind stitch (I've followed this YouTube video for blindstitch instructions).


Make a whole bunch of coloured hearts to use as decorations or cute Valentine's day gift.
Happy Monday and hope your Valentine's week is filled with love and rainbows.
