Sew the twine and the paper hearts together.  Continue past the hearts and keep sewing until you get to where you want the next heart to be.

On this banner, I would sew until the end of the previous Valentine reaches the edge of the sewing machine plate.

Repeat until you attach all the Valentines.

Even with sewing this slowly,  the sewing only took 10 minutes.  I was surprised and pleased that I was able to just sew along the entire length.  I did not need to cut the thread or glue, or staple or fiddle with anything.  It worked very smoothly.

      Thank you for saying so Julie. I thought the modern blue, and of course pink made it less gender specific that the over the top romantic style.

      Your such a sweetheart Marie. Thank you for choosing mine to comment on when you recognized it. It very nice to know that I am developing a certain “look” to my photographs, its a goal I am working hard on. Thank you so very much for noticing and providing me feedback on it.

  8. Such a cute idea for adding a little holiday flare to your decor! I don’t know why I never decorate for Valentine’s Day but you’ve inspired me!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I don’t do very much for Valentine’s day anymore as we are empty nesters. The decor itself is so pretty and appealing though. I hope you find time to do some and enjoy it. Happy Valentines

      Thank you, Debra. I made it to open up and then liked it flat. Go figure… but its nice to have the choice.
