1002000 Puffy Polyester Wool Stuffing for Filling and Decoration, 250 g, White

Additional: Template, Pencil, Needles, Sewing Machine, Sewing Thread, Baking Paper, Iron, Sewing Needles.

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.

1. Paint the inside of the box and lid light blue using the wide brush. Leave to dry. Paint the outside of the base orange and leave to dry.

2. Cut a piece of Oaki Doki fabric approximately 23 x 23 cm. Use the thin brush to cover the outside of the lid with transparent glue. Position the lid in the centre of the fabric. Stick the fabric to the lid, smoothing it out to the edges. Apply more transparent glue to the edge of the lid. Pull the fabric down over the edge of the lid. The tighter the fabric is, the less folds will appear around the rim. Fix the fabric with wooden pegs and leave to dry. Use scissors to cut the excess fabric.

3. Cut a 42 cm strip of bias binding. The bias binding is folded in the middle making it easier to fold it over the edge of the lid. Wrap it around the bottom edge of the lid (half on the outside, half on the inside) and stick it in position with transparent glue. Hold it in position with wooden pegs whilst it dries. Thread a piece of waxed cotton cord through the button and knot it. Glue the button to the centre of the box lid using the hot glue gun.
