Patchwork hearts is an easy embroidery workshop to show you how to upcycle old denim jeans and fabric scraps. Then you will turn them into a lovely new valentine-themed cushion.
Learn some easy machine embroidery techniques to use up scraps of fabrics. Then turn your embellished panel into hearts and applique them onto the denim patchwork squares. Finally, you’ll learn how to make an envelope cushion. Or you can make a wall-hanging instead.
Your patchwork hearts cushion will be completely unique and the envy of your friends. For other recycling projects, why not try Rags to Riches too?
