Rating No Heart for Me
I was able to follow these instructions for the first half of the heart, but then got totally and hopelessly lost for the second part. What good are directions if you can't make a finished product? I'll keep trying because I love the shape, but this has not been fun.

Designer's Note: Both Karla and Shanna learned to make these hearts years ago (before the instructions existed with photos). It took each of them about 8 hours and multiple tries to get the hang of this difficult project. Their advice: be patient, take it apart and start over, take breaks if needed, and make sure you are following every detail in the instructions (positioning of the piece is especially important). Don't give up!

Rating Love it!
I love making this heart! I thought the directions were easy to follow, although I agree with a couple of the other reviewers, that a couple of pics could have been clearer. However, if you follow the written directions, you can' go wrong. The 2 square flap was ingenious!! Can't wait to make more.

I did get through the instructions with a completed puffy heart, although, I had strung it wrong. I took it apart and am still trying. I was in a hurry the first time and when I slowed down and paid attention to the detail of the instructions, it made them a lot easier to follow. Be sure to look at the picture and make sure that your puffy heart looks like the picture and the beads of yours looks like the picture also. I hope that helps someone.

Rating Not so hard
I bought the instructions (on sale) quite a while ago, and just pulled them out last night. My eyes crossed a couple of times, but I got through it and it's beautiful! The most trouble I had was getting the Supplemax through a couple of crystals (arthritic fingers) but solved that problem with a large eye needle, and clear sailing after that. Thanks, Aunties.....

I was very unhappy with the directions for the woven puffy heart. There were three or more errors in the directions. We are still trying to make the heart. I feel the directions were too complicated.

Rating Directions , pictures need work and cant see string a different color
The directions were okay but they need some work.. You need different pictures to help with understanding on what you are telling us to do.. The pictures are to dark, you need to make the crystals lighter and make the string darker so we can see where it is going.. I was working this pattern from your directions and got have way thru but I couldn’t really understand the pictures and couldn’t see where the string was going on what you were trying to ask me to do..

I have been working on the Puffy Heart for over a month. It would really be helpful if the beads being worked were in a different color so you know they are being placed in the right spot. My husband has seen me start over and over again and asks me why I haven't given up. I told him what I paid (he paid) for the instructions -I'm not given up yet.

I got half way through and I was very excited but then..ugh...second half of instructions isn''''t working for me. I took it out several times and it still doesn''''t work. very confusing..HELP!!!!! If I could make these hearts and put them into our line the cost of the instructions would justify itself but so far no good..UGH

Rating Review of puffy heart instructions
Mostly I found the instructions to be clear. The problem started @ #52. If not making a bail, the knot was very visible. Not good! Got any ideas to remedy this?

I could not make the heart with these instructions. I would get about half way through and could not figure it out. I can''''t believe I paid $20.00 for a few pages of paper. I have since bought another set of instructions for $8.00 and I now can make them without any pattern. I don''''t think I will be trusting any of your instructions but I am happy with the supplies I bought.

Rating Fun & Easy!
I was weary of being able to make the puffy heart, I watched a few online videos and downloaded a free instruction pamphlet but none were concise or easy to follow. I took one last chance with Aunties Beads and the instructions are so easy to follow with excellent pictures. I''''ve made about 12 hearts in 1 month.
