I'm real happy to see so many people sewing this project!! :D
Someone has even turned into into a ITH design!
Looks like an awesome idea to me, as the embroidery machine sure stitches in a much more precise way then me ;) and also it can be a much easier way to know where to correctly place an embroidery design (like a name initial for example).
So if anyone of the wonderful digitizers out here decides to make this a ITH project, let me know!! :)
These are beautiful.
thank you for posting this link!!!
Thanks so much for the link. I have a few friends that are all single and we have decided to celebrate valentine's day together - it's about love not just relationships and have decided to make each person a gift. Going to be fun!
thank you to everyone for posting this , I think this would make a lovely
cute present , a novel pincushion and maybe cute shoe stuffers too!!
Thank you to everyone for posting this and posting where to find the pattern. It is so cute and the idea of hand warmers, that is great too.
Thanks for this - I'm just going to make one!
I'm just going to watch the rugby.
Himself is doing just that and I'm keeping out of the way!
'Himself' is clearly a man of impecible taste.
He'd have to be, he married our Sue didn't he.

scroll down to January 2014 heart pincushion
thank you for the link address
That's fine, I had seen it somewhere & this is what I could find.
Thanks for your replies and help :)
I'm not sure if the knot is made appart from the heart shape...
So far the most similar I have found to this one is a pattern for a pincush.
You are almost certainly correct regarding the free design pattern shown in your link. Looking at the various pictures, it seems to me that the bow is tied through the hole at the top of the heart after it has been finally filled and sealed. This would have the effect of hiding any final stitches after the filling process (well, it would in the case of my quality of hand sewing). The only other change I can see is possibly the shape of the bow, the size of the heart, and the fact that the maker of the items in your pictures has added a reinforcing rivet to hold the keychain element. I'm not sure how things stand as regards the copyright issue by amending the design on the fatquartershop site but it might be worth dropping them an email just out of courtesy.
This is a very good idea Dennis. Thanks for your help.
One should always contact the original artist/digitizer prior to making any changes or design adjustments to the design file itself. Most (but not all) allow you to choose your own colors. Many will also allow you to break the design into parts. I do hope everyone is reading the Terms and Conditions before they download any type of file.
Also, searched around and by looking at the picture you could easily make your own. Cut out two heart shapes, stitch around leaving an opening to turn, fill and then join the two tops so the tie can loop through.
I have been doing a search and although there are many designs of a similar nature to these, I have not found this exact design. I do agree that it is a very nice design and the best that I have seen.
Can you recall where you found this picture as this might help with the search. In the meantime I will carry on hunting.
