It is June and it is strawberry season. I love strawberries and can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner! And how could I miss making a strawberry appliqué?  I would like to share with you this simple Heart Strawberry Appliqué. It is easy to make and very cute, but it is not as tasty as a real one!

 


Have you noticed that sometimes strawberries have shape of a heart?
