Sweetheart

I made my first attempt at a fabric heart/pin cushion. I'm pretty darn pleased with myself at how it turned out.


I used all vintage fabrics, with the exception of the muslin ruffle.


The embroidered piece I used at the bottom inspired the colors and fabrics.


I added sequins, beads, and old buttons to give it some more character.


And I searched through my stash for the perfect piece of tatting.


The hardest part was stitching the front and back together with the ruffled trim. I think I need to watch some video tutorials to get the hang of it a little better before I attempt another one.
