I’ve found some beautiful beads!

I bought these years ago thinking I might have a go at making a necklace, somehow, never did! They won’t make a comfy cushion, but I hope a beautiful one.

I keep seeing cushions with hearts formed from buttons (I suspect one of those will turn up sooner or later). I think the beads will look better as an outline.

There’s no easy way to draw a heart outline on velvet so my cunning plan is to pin on the paper I cut a heart out from, so I can use the inner edge. The beads will be heavy so a bit of scrap fabric on the back will help to hold the weight.

If you need a heart template, just search free heart templates on line. There are lots to choose from. Lots of generous crafters. THANK YOU all!
