Instructions to Make the Lavender Sachet Heart Bunting

Step 1. Cut out the Heart Bunting Template.

Step 2. Using the Heart Bunting Template, trace 24 hearts on the wrong side of your fabric. For my bunting, the front and back of each heart bunting segment is the same fabric. I cut 2 hearts from 12 fabrics.

Step 4. Select 2 fabric hearts. Place them wrong sides together. Stitch around the heart using a 1/4″ seam allowance, leaving about 1″ to 2″ open along one straight edge. Backstitch at the beginning and end of your stitching.

  1. This looks like a fun project. I’m going to make a few individual sachets for my Thursday group.
    I would like to make a correction to Step 4 – it should read ‘wrong sides together’ instead of ‘right sides together’.
