OK- Sorry to mention the 'C' word, but Christmas is coming....I have been having a 'play' with some lavender filled vintage fabric hearts, with Christmas in mind.
I have stitched lots of vintage bits and bobs onto one side of the heart and surrounded it with antique lace. I was thinking that it could be used after Christmas too- hung in the boudoir to scent the room! I would have liked to have put them on my website, but the cost of all the little vintage piece, would perhaps mean the price would be too high for most people's pockets. I may have to tone down the amount of pieces stitched on!
There is a chandelier drop stitched to the bottom...so maybe it is a bit over the top for most peoples taste anyway. Lace and a drop may be enough?!! I do like the Victorian quality that it has though....I shall have another go anyway.......
