Project I "Heart" Emma" -- X-ACTO Giveaway

My daughter and I need to stay off Pinterest for a while.  LOL  The ideas and tutorials run ramped there.  Tabitha saw this wonderful curtain of hearts home decor and sent me an email with a link.  "Can you make this for Emma's room?"  Now how can you turn down a grandchild and an awesome project.

Here is the original project:  Honeybee Vintage blog.

Ingredients:  American Crafts cardstock; Spellbinder's heart; thread, sewing machine, wood molding, paint

A note or two we did on our own:  the wood piece is 49 inches long.  That held 11 rows of hearts.  It only took one sheet of card stock per color and I had left over hearts.  The hearts are sewed with about 1 inch in-between each heart.  My hearts are 3.5 x 3.5.  Although the curtain is multicolored I tried to make sure there was a bit more pink. 

Watch out:  make sure when you are sewing your hearts that you have all the pieces face up or face down.  I did mine with the textured side up.

The hardest thing for me about the project was lining up the colors of the hearts.  I did not want any two colors side by side.  I laid it out on the floor in rows and columns first before sewing them.

So what did we do with the banner?  Tabitha moved it to hang over the baby's book shelves.
