Heart #018

Line up the two parts so that the colour you want in the centre is the inner part. Insert the larger blade of the outer part into the slid below the smaller blade of the other. Turn the heart to the other side and do the same here. When you weave the central part the…

Heart #017

In order to make room for weaving and to be able to flatten the heart you must cut out two slices near the central strip. The last strip may be troublesome if you do not take care to push the first strips as far back as possible. Do not start flattening until all weaving is…

Heart #016

This is my “full surface” version of a “town heart” like the one by Karsten Blem. The heart is somewhat difficult to weave. When weaving check the picture to make sure you get the sequence right. Near the blades some weaving is omitted. You should line up the two parts after weaving each strip. And in no…

Heart #015

This heart is a combination of #003 and #014. It is extremely difficult to weave and due to the multiple layers the result does not turn out as nice as you would wish. It is also too hard to line up and flatten. Thus an alternative – and some dedicated heart weavers may say forbidden…

Heart #014

This heart is like #003. You have to cut two different parts. It is easier to weave if you cut the edge of the upper small strip on the part having three. After weaving you may fix the loose strips with a little glue.  

Heart #013

Heart #013 is just like #011 and #012. However, you need two different parts to get a symmetrical heart. Here the centre in the white part is cut out and also the white point is cut away.  

Heart #012

Heart #012 I think has more pleasing proportions than #011. If you can manage #011 you can weave this heart as well. The centre is punched out in the white part, the point cut away in the white. When weaving the last red strip you will realise that you have to cut “backwards” from the…
