Two French Boutis Hearts easily stitched by sewing two pieces of batiste together by hand with a running stitch over the lines of the pattern. From the back yarn is then drawn through the channels and motifs creating a raised relief to the piece. The ancient art of French Boutis is reversible and translucent allowing light to pass through illuminating the design. You will fall in love with the beauty of this delicate needle work!

SUCH A LOVELY IDEA FOR VALENTINE'S DAY OR A SPECIAL GIFT FOR SOMEONE ANYTIME! Hang the white sun catcher in the window and see the light shine through showing your beautiful needlework or use as an ornament. Use the pink one as a sachet, a pin cushion, a heart paperweight, or a lovely bowl filler!

These 4-3/4" hearts are a quick and easy way to try this exquisite needlework technique. It is a great project for a small needlework group as well.

-Easy to read Instructions with photos

Everything in this kit but some spare time for me to make it. The packaging/presentation made me feel like I had just received a gift from a high end boutique. Absolutely love the little bonus sachet too. Very detailed instructions and received only a few days after ordering.
