Scrappy, Stuffed Heart Tutorial: "Scraps of my love"

Copyright © 2008-2009- All Rights Reserved - Written by Chasity Gordon of Belle South and Belle and Burger blog.


Here's what Chasity said about her hearts tutorial: ~These stuffed hearts are made mostly from my scrap pile. They are a little bigger than an open paw…measuring at about 7” across the heart at its widest part.

Chasity's Bio - Chasity Gordon is the owner of Belle South and Belle and Burger blog. She makes clothing, accessories, household items, baby clothes and slings, and handmade cards, prints and books. She is a home schooled seamstress and crafty by nature, but trained as a studio print maker studying printmaking and ceramics in college and was drawn to "lowbrow" functional art. She uses pockets, patches, apron bibs and wallet fronts as sort of blank pages to draw and collage with bits of fabric and string.

Crochet Stuffed Hearts Tutorial by Susan Ramey Cleveland of Blackberry Creek Home Arts

I always wanted to learn how to crochet.  In fact, I tried several times to teach myself or have my sister-in-law teach me - all to no avail.  I just never could get it.  All my stitches ended up too tight and all tangled up.  So, I have great admiration for crafters who can crochet and make beautiful crocheted items.

Susan Ramey Cleveland of Blackberry Creek Home Arts blog is an amazing quilter, altered art & fiber artist, mixed media artist,  and crochet artist.  She has a wonderful tutorial, that is shown below, that teaches you how to make crochet stuffed hearts.  I hope you enjoy making Susan's crochet stuffed hearts.  I just wish I could.

My Heart Has Wings Tutorial By June Crawford of A Creative Dream


Do you love making hearts? If you do June Crawford has a wonderful tutorial on her A Creative Dream blog showing you how to make a heart with wings. Enjoy!


Copyright © 2009 - All Rights Reserved - Written by June Crawford of A Creative Dream

Here's what June had to say about her tutorial:  I'm fascinated with hearts and wings lately. Well, honestly, I've been fascinated with each for a very long time, but more recently it's been them together. I'm not sure if it has any underlying meaning or not...but they have been in my dreams for a while now. Driving home from work last Thursday an idea came to me.

I tend to see things completely finished when an idea comes to me, the details all have to be worked out later, but the underlying idea begins with a mold that I have for wings, an old, old, old quilt, and is influenced by some very old linens that my grandmother embellished.

Please respect June's TERMS OF USE:  Please note, in regard to the copyright, all of the directions and photographs in my tutorials are mine, you may not copy or reproduce them without my consent. These instructions are for you to use for PERSONAL use only, not for profit.

June's Bio:  Me... a dreamer, a ponderer of big and small thoughts. A wanna-be artist, a soon to be empty-nester... wondering what the heck I am gonna do with the rest of my life...
