Construction

The heart is made in one piece, using a branching method to create the humps.

The whole heart is done in the loop stitch, which are then cut and brushed to create the super-soft, super-fluffy buddy you will love.

Get a big pair of safety eyes to paint with glitter, the bigger the better! Big eyes make for a cuter face. 🙂
