1. Transfer the half heart (template) to the Oaki Doki fabric without a seam allowance. A left and a right half are required for each of the two fabrics. Take one plain and one patterned half heart and place them together with the right sides facing inwards. Sew the two halves of the heart together down the middle. Repeat for the other two halves.

Tip: Lay the two fabrics on top of each other and place the paper half heart before cutting. Fix the paper half heart to the fabric with pins. When the fabric is cut two identical heart halves (one left and one right) are automatically created.

(2) Remove the film from the glitter transfer sheet and punch out a flower. Place the flower on the white heart half and fix it with the iron. (Position baking paper over the glitter sheet.)

(3) Place the hearts right sides together and secure them with pins. Then sew them together leaving a turning opening.

Trim the seams as much as possible especially at the curves. Cut the seam at the heart tip. Turn the fabric through the opening and fill well with the wool filling.

(4) Sew the opening together by hand with a concealed mattress stitch.

You can download the template from Efco’s German Website.
