My mom has been awesome at checking blogs and finding craft ideas on the net. She came across this cute idea featured on tip junkie.
She sees everything with vision on how to dress it up, put it together, and make it look great! Here is a photo of BonBon's version. She used buttons from her own collection as well as my Grandma's.
There will be more pics forthcoming.
Here is the template we used to trace the heart onto the fabric. I also used it to lay out the buttons before I sewed them on. Thanks BonBon, I love it!
