Leslie from Leslie’s Art and Sew has been making jars filled with Hope Hearts to give to people battling a major illness. The simple stuffed shapes are a reminder of all the love being sent to them by friends and family. This started out as a personal project, but she’s gotten such a warm response to her project that she’s sharing a tutorial and a kit so you can start your own. She shares a tutorial and template on her blog. And to help you get started on filling your jars, she will send you a Hope Heart Kit, with the templates, the printed tutorial, and three hearts already made. Go to her blog to read more about her Hope Heart project.
