Míra

A Little Heart

I can’t believe how time’s flying! It’s February already, the month of LOVE.

To celebrate it, I’ve created a cute heart pattern: Míra

This beautiful little heart can be a tiny thoughtful gift for Valentine’s Day, it can be used as a decoration, just make a bunch of them or create a garland and hang it on the wall, the possibilities are endless! 🙂

It works up super fast and it’s easy enough for an advanced beginner as it has a full step-by-step photo tutorial.
