This book is ideal for beginners, it starts off with the basic techniques for sewing hearts, and adding the hangers and then has 20 projects involving hanging hearts. The projects use different materials and techniques which include appliqué, felt hearts, embroidery, patchwork, hearts with pockets etc so you can learn new techniques whilst working on a fairly simple project.

The book is easy to follow with good photography, clear instructions and full size templates at the back of the book. There are also photos for many stages of the construction of the hearts too. These pretty hearts would make great gifts, or nice little decorative touches around the house.

This review also appears on The Sewing Directory.

Heartshapes are always a lovely subject to work with, somehow no matter what form they take they seem attractive, I always like table runners, wall hangings and quilts embellished with heart shapes, so I just had to take a closer look at this book.

Although hearts come in very basic shapes, some long and some wide and fatter, it's always good to see how other people embellish them and if you're stuck for ideas of your own, this can provide inspiration, as well as instruction for newies as they're all made by basic machine or hand stitching, nothing complicated and plenty of step by step photographs too.

There's a lovely string of hearts, also ideas for country, rustic, French style and felt embellished, lacy, all sorts of ideas, great as little gifts for friends to hang from door or drawer knobs, or in wardrobes or hooks on the wall, hall coat racks, anywhere you fancy really. These can brighten up rooms and hearts and for such a small outlay, and these can be portable projects too, great to make on holiday, travelling to work or during lunch breaks. Sweet inspiration, very nice.

Take it to heart, Rachael has produced a stunning book of hearts for everyone who loves to sew. There are basic instructions on creating a heart, how to attach a piece of ribbon for hanging and stuffing. The book includes clear instructions for twenty hearts. Rachael has thought of lots of ways to decorate hearts including embroidery, felt bows and more. This is a great little book. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.

A lovely addition to your craft books, I would probably make most of the projects in the book and be inspired by the rest, lovely photography too.

This is an absolutely delightful little book with lots of the scrummiest fabric hanging hearts you could wish for!! It starts off with materials and equipment and basic techniques then shows you lots of gorgeous hearts to make with great instructions. At the back of the book are easy to copy templates. I cant wait to get started.
