Cut a 35cm piece of linen fabric and transfer the stitchery motif onto one corner. Download Heart full of Kisses stitchery design.

Cut a piece of coordinating cotton fabric the same size and pin the two together. I then bound the two pieces of fabric together using pre-made bias binding.
I have also had a lot of fun dying vintage lace doilies like the pink one in the photo. Why not give that a go too.
