Burlap has a tendency to unravel rather quickly so the first thing we want to do is seam finish the edges of the burlap hearts. Burlap has a tendency to unravel rather quickly so the first thing we want to do is seam finish the edges of the burlap hearts.

This is what the burlap looks like if you do not do a zig-zag seam finish on the edges. Can you imagine how much it would fray within a couple of days? This is what happened right away.

These handmade rustic petite burlap hanging hearts will look pretty hanging in windows for Valentine's day. To do a seam finish sew a zig-zag stitch around the outer edge of the heart as shown. You are actually stitching on the fabric and off the fabric using the zig-zag stitch. Here is a more detailed explanation of why and how we seam finish using a zig-zag stitch.

You do not need a lot of stuffing. Keep in mind burlap stretches out of place very easily so do not over stuff the burlap heart.
