What a lovely heart.

i like all of the different textures that are going on.  What kind of process did you use to put this wonderful heart together?
« Reply #3 on: February 25, 2008 07:49:01 PM »

To make the heart I layered bits of ribbon, fabric, etc. onto a piece of iron-on backing (Heat'n Bond it's called I think), then sewed all the pieces together with zigzag or plain small stitches, cut a heart from scrap card and traced around it onto the back of the iron-on paper, then cut out the whole thing.  I then cut another heart the same from felt, sandwiched the fabric heart and felt heart with a layer of batting between them, cut the batting to shape, then zigzag sewed around the edge with metallic green thread.  Brooch pin sewn to back.  I also went around the edge with that no-fray gluey stuff to prevent the edges splitting, as some of the fabric is silk and frays if you so much as look at it!  Seems to hold together OK anyway.  Thanks for looking ...

That is just lovely.  I too was impressed with how neat the edges are.  I was thinking you must have serged it - since there are not little loose bits hanging out.

Beautiful work.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).
