Heart Applique

Warning-  Anyone who loves doilies or makes doilies you probably don't want to read this post.  

I made this applique by cutting up a doily.  I promise it wasn't some antique doily from my grandma.  I bought it at the craft store for next to nothing.  I did feel a little guilty about cutting it up.  I also used a heart fabric and some bias tape.  I cut them into 3 strips and sewed them together and then cut the heart shape.  To finish it off and to prevent fraying I used bias tape on the edges. Then I sewed a few colorful heart buttons on to the doily portion and sewed it on to the jumper.
