Tutorial: Heart Cut-Out

I've been neglectful this week, I apologize! But as I mentioned on Thursday, I have some fun stuff coming.

Ah, a tutorial! On something you perhaps didn't care to learn anyway? Well, here it is. It is much less daunting to make a tutorial for part of something, or a technique, than it is to make one for an entire garment. So I went ahead and filmed this. There are pattern recommendations in the description bar below the video. I haven't actually looked at these in the store, so I don't know if they have facings or a lining, but they looked pretty decent. Let me know if you have a pattern in mind that would work for this, & I'll add it to the description!

So that's that! If you have questions, I'd be happy to answer them.


  1. Excellent tutorial. Thank you so much. I know I'll be using this idea in the future.

  2. Thanks so much for making this tutorial. Super cute!

    Anonymous - Interfacing is a material that is either ironed or sewn into places of a garment for structure, support, or stiffness.
