Repeat moving around the succulent to build it up. TIP – Add petals in between the previous two. Look at the front of the succulent before sewing on the petals to make sure you are happy with the shape.


4. When you have made your succulents, place them on to the cushion cover to create a heart shape. Pin the succulents to the cushion cover.


5. Stitch the succulents into place from the inside of the cover.


Such a simple yet effective look! You could experiment with different colours and even add a sentiment in the centre of the heart, to create a new home gift!
