I enjoy making these woven hearts for Valentine's Day (and other holidays too). They are a typical Scandinavian decoration. You probably have made these before. Usually you cut out the pieces by hand using a template, but I decided to make some files to give me more time to do other things while my hearts are cut out by my Cricut.
I had some other things going on Saturday so I won't be able to do a full explanation right now. If you don't know how to weave these together there are several sites that can show you - just search for "Scandinavian Woven Hearts."
Since Valentine's Day is Monday, I wanted to get the files posted for anyone who still needs to make some decorations. I ended up testing the Gypsy file and ran into some problems (that I have fixed) so by the time I did all of my fixing there was not time left to write up the step by step. I have lots more photos and some explanation of the design process to add sometime on Sunday so check back.
I have almost figured out the file for this variation (I first saw this idea in the Family Fun magazine). I cut this sample with my Cricut, but I needed to hand cut to complete some of the curved cuts so it doesn't look as sharp as I'd like. I am still trying to make it perfect...
Here are the file download links - I used Plantin Schoolbook but you could convert the file for any other cartridge that has a rectangle and a circle. Please be sure to click only on the file download buttons and not to download anything else on the 4shared - apparently there is a toolbar that some people downloaded (which you do not need) and then they had computer issues. I am still working out an alternative hosting site but for today - 4shared will do.
I have paid for a premium service to make direct downloads available to my readers. I do have a donate button near the top of the right column if you would like to make a donation to show appreciation for the files and to help with the cost of this service - Thanks!
