Coffee heart made of cloth. Master Class
To make a textile coffee heart, we need the following materials:
- light fabric (chintz, coarse calico, linen);
- filler (sintepon);
- jute thread;
- instant coffee;
- PVA glue.
First we'll make a textile valentine. Here everything is simple: we transfer the pattern, we sew, we cut out, we turn it out, stuff it with sintepon and sew it up.
The most interesting part of the master class begins -coloring the product with a coffee blend. The recipe for the mixture is as follows: for 50 ml of hot water we take 2 tablespoons of the cheapest instant coffee and 0.5 teaspoon of cinnamon. All carefully mix and, if there are lumps, filter. Add 1 tablespoon of PVA and mix again well.
We put the coffee-cinnamon mixture on the product. That there were no streaks, swabs should be fast, and a brush semidry. You can also paint with a sponge, good at the seams.
Painted heart hang (you can not put it,otherwise there will be a divorce) and leave to dry for the night in a warm place. If you want to achieve a vintage effect, then the heart should be baked in the oven. Cooking should be at a temperature of 110 ° for at least 10 minutes.
The dried heart can be additionally gratedVanillin (but not vanilla sugar). Unfortunately, the Internet can not give you this coffee flavor with notes of cinnamon and vanilla, but, believe me, it's very pleasant. The main part of the master class is behind, we turn to the decorating options.
Master class on decorating the coffee heart
To decorate a textile heart, we will need the following materials and tools:
- jute thread;
- coffee beans;
- accessories for decoration (buttons, pendants, ribbons);
- hot melt;
- glue gun.
First we make a flower yo-yo. From burlap or rough flax, cut out a circle of small diameter and stitch it around the circumference with small stitches. We gather the circle to the center and sew, we sew the button as the core.
The next stage will be to glue the coffee beans. For these purposes, it is good to use an adhesive gun. We paste the grains in random order. We stack them and the front and back, and here and there and sideways.
In addition, the heart can be decorated with buttons,sew on a pendant, braid or lace. Here, as they say, fantasize and rely on your own taste. In the next master class, we will consider such decorating techniques as decoupage.

To make a decoupage of the textile heart we will need:
- decoupage (you can use three-layer serving napkins);
- adhesive for decoupage (suitable for PVA glue);

For decoupage we need a card or napkin with plant motifs (leaves, branches, flowers). From the chosen napkin we cut out small fragments. Separate the colorful top layer.
Apply the fragment and start with a brush withglue it on top of it. We look, so that the folds and bubbles do not form. The fragment from the other side should be glued only as the drying is already pasted.
