My daughter says my crafts have ceased being a hobby and are now a full blown obsession...I don't know what it is lately but I am just having so much darn fun. Once I get an idea in my head I have to get into my craftroom and work the thing out...maybe it's just old age but I don't want to forget it. Take these delightful little heart shaped pillows...I knew what I wanted to do and as I started to plan them out, I got so excited...the thrill of the hunt was on. I discovered the most wonderful product called "Sew In". It's a computer printer fabric that allows you to print an image directly onto fabric...then you can use that fabric image however your heart desires. For all I know it's been out there for years but it's new to me and boy, do I love it. Okay enough of my ramblings, let me show you what I came up with...
I used basic felt I already had on hand for the heart shape and found a free download with the Victorian Couple image.
From the scraps of felt I cut out a smaller heart and used a simple blanket stitch to attach it to an old piece of brown burlap.
Same process for this one...downloaded a free image...added some lace, a flower and a button.
I made one more but I will save it to post tomorrow...I think it's my favorite so far...
Don't you just love the romance of it all?
