Making the Big Front Label:
Step 1. Print out the heart pattern that is provided.
Step 2. Cut out the heart.
Step 3. With a felt tip pen, draw around the outside of the heart on the backside of your fabric. This is your sewing line.

Step 6. Clip around the curves and
Step 7. Turn the heart inside out
Step 8. With a glue stick, close the opening on the side creasing it in place.
