Now turn the heart over. Don't worry about the stitches showing on the front, because they will be hidden under the flower and leaves. Sew the leaves on using thebackstitch. Be sure to stitch down the very center of each leaf. See photo B.


Sew the flower on using a French knot in the center. Or you could sew it on using a small bead instead. See photo C.
