The leather is hand dyed, cut, glued and sewn. No machines for this little guy! Hand sewing ensures a very strong seam, which you need for an item that gets around! After adding a bit of filling to create the puffed effect, the heart goes through a rigorous sanding, dyeing and burnishing at its edges. Finally, hardware is added and she's set to go!
