There's little time left before St. Valentine's Day, so one could make a nice souvenir with his own hands!
For this, you need:
- PVA glue
- paint on fabric
- cotton cloth
- a piece of fleece
- two types of wire (thin and thicker)
- polyester batting
- pencil, permanent marker
- wire cutters
- sewing machine
And here is the pattern (by Marianne Averyanova):
Sew the hearts, leavу a hole for stuffing, turn it outside in and stuff properly.
Make the legs: bend 40cm of the thicker wire:
Wind the tape:
Make two holes where to insert the legs:
Take fleece ribbon with width 1.5 cm, wrap the legs:
Make a liquid for priming. A half cup of water + two tablespoons of PVA glue + paint + any flavouring (I added vanilla and rum).
Properly impregnate the toy and put it to dry in the oven at 150 degrees for 40-60 minutes with the door open. I put the toy in a ceramic mug, made it stay vertically.
While the heart dries, make hands — use the thin wire of 26-28 cm wrapped with thread. The ends of the thread are fixed with a drop of glue:
Then, apply them any shape:
Draw and paint the face:
Pierce the toy to insert the hands:
Wrap with the tape:
And with thread:
Don't tear off the thread, bring it to another hand:
Make a haircut for the smaller heart:
Our two hearts are ready! You can now dream of creating romantic scenes. The toys can be glued to any base:
If you lack time, sew hearts with loops to hang at:
Thank you for your attention, wish you love, joy and creativity :)
