Comments - Curbly Video Podcast: How to make woven fabric hearts.

Iron On interfacing worked much better for me.  I tried the glue and didn't mind the mess, but when it dried, it didn't try very smoothely.  The iron on interfacing gave a much classier look.  A touch of spray starch and a hit with the iron made them nice and crisp.   Very cute.

I like the idea I wish there was written instructions as well!!!

Sorry Roxanna, no written instructions, but they're so easy you won't need them! ;)

Awesome project - I will have to give this a try.  Do you have a set of written instructions for this?  I have trouble remembering things & am afraid I will miss an important step.  It's ever so much easier for me to make projects from the written word with pictures after having watched the video.

Thanks & keep up the good work!!!

Both adding body and serving as a 'fray check'. Fusible interfacing would work too.

What is the purpose of the glue or stiffener?  Are you trying to seal the fabric edges, or just add body?  I was pondering if there is a less messy way to make these, like using iron-on interfacing on the wrong side or substituting a different fabric like craft felt (and then using a decorative button).  Any advice?
