During the long holiday weekend, I was stuck at home while the rest of ChatterboxBeach met at the shore to make a collection of hearts together.

They sent me a picture of what they were making. For this project, they cut deep-red, velvet-like fabric into heart shapes, sewed the pieces together adding twine for hanging, and stuffed them plump. They made so many beautiful hearts.

Wanting to get involved, I dove into my home fabric stash and came up with a soft purple fabric and made my own his-and-her hearts in purple.


Hearts become popular just before Valentine’s Day, but they have a forever message of love and friendship.

Here are some ideas ChatterboxBeach has for displaying hearts:

 Billie likes to string several hearts on a ribbon and display the garland at the Orange Blossom Shop in Hampstead, NC.
 Caroline suggests hanging hearts on cabinet knobs to add sparkle to the room.
 She also ties homemade hearts onto birthday, wedding, hostess and graduation gifts for added charm.
 Hearts left on a pillow make special valentines.
 Hearts in a bowl make a pleasing display.
 Mary suggests adding hearts to a wreath or vase.
 She also likes to strategically place them at table settings for added beauty.

No matter how you choose to display your hearts, ChatterboxBeach has enjoyed making them.
