For a young child's bracelet 2 1/2" diameter. Add more hearts and beads to enlarge.
small piece red wool felt
.7mm Stretch Magic elastic
red embroidery floss
 Copy pattern.
 Cut out 2 hearts for each heart on bracelet (I needed 4 finished hearts so I cut out 8 hearts.) To make hearts match when sewing, cut two out at a time and keep them pinned together.
 Using 2 strands of embroidery floss, blanket stitch two hearts together.
 Thread Stretch Magic elastic on a needle that will fit through your beads.
 Leaving a 5" tail of elastic, string 1 heart and 5 beads until you reach the desired length. (Slide the needle between the 2 layers of hearts so the thread cannot be seen. String through the widest part of the heart.
 Tie the ends of the elastic and string the ends through a few beads hide ends.
