Anyway, for the sale, I made more of the lovely vintage fabric hearts. Didn't I say that I would love to make more of them? They are so much fun to make.
Start with a fabric heart for the background, add strips of various fabrics like you're making a crazy quilt, add some lace and fancy stitches along the seams. Then stitch together the heart front to the backing. Turn and embellish with some fabric yo-yo's and fancy buttons. I hand-sewed the hanging ribbon to the top at the very end and added a button to cover up the ribbon ends.
Check out this little vintage jar that I filled with antique spools of thread and embellished with some ribbon and stamping. Of course the threads were peach, pink, cream and purple!
And who wouldn't want one of these lovely gifts?
