Valentine's Day Wall Hanging
This is a cute wall hanging my husband and I created on paper. I used a 16 1/2" square up to create the wall hanging's size. To create the appliques, I used Heat 'n Bond - Firm on fleece and the Cricut and Gypsy machines. On the gypsy, I pulled up all the hearts for my cartridges and decided to use George and Basics for the regular heart shapes, and Gypsy Wanderings for the key-to-my-heart design. The X's came from Cuttin' Up. I used a deep cutting blade, low speed, max pressure and double cuts. Most of the shapes turned out decent with a little clean up needed. If I had to do it again, I would have used a slightly thinner fabric. I created the design on a purple cotton remnant, and sewed it to white quilted backing. I put a 1 1/2 border along the back of the hanging and cut slits into it to hang.
