I made this for a friend's birthday. She grew up Catholic, and still collects Catholic iconography in its varied forms. Now she has a Sacred Heart of her very own!
It's made of squeaky acrylic from my stash, with some metallic-y cotton stuff (Knit Cro-Sheen, maybe?) for the flames, regular and metallic embroidery floss for the thorns, and Czech fire-polish faceted beads for the droplets of blood.
Of course I forgot to take pics of the cream velvet lining and the little red zipper, and to include any sort of size reference. It's about 5 1/2" at it's widest point, just big enough to hold tiny cell phone and a few dollars, maybe a lipstick, too. I kind of wish I'd kept it!
What do you think? Other than the fact that I take lousy pictures...
