Sew pretty homestyle) that taught me some new tricks and my new hearts are gorgeous.
Tip 1: Don't cut out the shape until after sewing. I cut out two rectangles, drew the heart, sewed and then trimmed around the shape.
Tip 2: Use small stitches. I hate unpicking when I make a mistake so I have gradually developed a habit of using large stitches - easier to unpick. But the small stitches handled the curves of the hearts so much better.
So in honour of my new found sewing skills I am offering to give away three of my pretty little hearts.
