Instructions
1.
Lightly draw the heart shape from the next page on the colored fabric for placement of the lace.
2.
Center a piece of lace on the heart. Place two pieces 1¼ inches away on each side.
3.
Using a tiny zigzag stitch (L=1.5, W=1.5) zigzag over each side of the lace. Overlap the heart shape you drew by about ½ inch.
4.
Carefully cut away the fabric from behind the lace being careful not to cut the stitches.
5.
Using the size 100 top stitching needle and a pin stitch, stitch on the right side of the piece along the lace. The straight part of the stitch should go along the edge of the lace and the “teeth” should go into the lace. If you do not have a pin stitch, you can use a regular zigzag stitch.
6.
Fold the 12 x 12 inch fabric in half. Draw the heart template on half the fabric with fabric marker.
7.
Fold the fabric in half and sew around the template using the wash-away basting thread in the bobbin and regular thread on top.
8.
Cut out the inside of the heart. Trim the seam allowances to ¼ inch clipping as needed.
9.
Turn the piece right side out.
10.
Press the piece using spray starch. Starch lightly three times and press completely dry.
11.
Give a tug on the piece and it will open up.
12.
Lay the 12 x 12 inch piece over the colored piece. Lay the stabilizer behind it.
13.
Attach it using a tiny zigzag stitch (L=2.0, W=1.0).
14.
Pin stitch around the heart. The straight part of the pin stitch should go into the white fabric and the “teeth” into the color.
15.
Trim away the excess fabric.
16.
Sew one row of decorative stitching around the heart.
17.
Wash out the stabilizer and markings. Press the piece.
18.
Square it to 11 x 11 inches.
19.
Using a ¼ inch seam allowance and regular white sewing thread, sew the 2 x 11 inch strips to the top and bottom of the piece.
20.
Press the seam allowances away from the center of the piece.
21.
Using a ¼ inch seam allowance, sew the 14 inch pieces to each side of the piece.
