HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Cut out two hearts from your fabric.
  2. Lay them right sides facing together.
  3. Pin and sew around outside edge, leaving a 3-4cm gap at the top.
  4. Make small cuts from the outer edge up to the stitching line to prevent the fabric puckering when turned through.
  5. Make a second heart and turn both through to the right way.
  6. Cut a length of ribbon and stitch one end to one heart, then the other to the second heart.
  7. Sew buttons onto each heart.
  8. Fill the hearts with sand and hand-stitch closed.
  9. Tie onto the corners of your tablecloth.
