Hearts on a String

For my daughter's birthday last weekend, I wanted to make some sort of heart-shaped "bunting", just for fun, and I decided on a mini-version.
I started off with the fabrics above.

Can you tell she likes pink?

This is what I finished up with. The hearts are about 2 inches high. I think it would be nice in other colour combinations as well - red and white comes to mind. Maybe on this scale it could also work with other shapes.
It was to go across two windows, and I made about 3 yards of it!

A string of hearts for the birthday girl.
