Heart To Heart

I want to thank everyone for their kind words, it means a lot to me.The sun did come out yesterday and I have kept busy working. I did all of the finishing work on my new design called "Heart To Heart"

This is a pic of some of the hearts. You can stitch them over one on 28ct linen and it will fit great into this heart pendant by Nunn Designs. I added a chain and lobster claw to hang  from my new scissors that April sent me :) I will have the pendants available on my Etsy shop shortly. Also, the larger heart with the letter B is cross stitched and then sewn  like a tiny pillow with a pin back. I will be pinning mine to my stitching bag. This chart will include an alphabet that fits perfect in the squares so you can make them for anyone

This heart was cross stitched, then Fray Check was added to the outside edges, and let dry. Then, a cardboard heart was cutout, slightly smaller than the stitched heart. Then, glue was applied to the edges of the cardboard heart and the stitched fabric was glued down and around to the back of the cardboard.  Next I glued a piece of felt to the back to hide the glued and folded over area. After it dried I added a grommet , chain, lobster claw and then attached it to my floss ring. If you notice also I did not stitch the center heart in the frame to the framed fabric. I made the heart separate like the others and then I pinned it in the center of the frame. That way I can change my hearts. Maybe you could make some hearts with the first letters of your children's names and if their heart is in the center of the frame for the day, then it is their special day :)   Just a idea. to make someone feel special






If you notice I have some crocheted hearts in the photo because I will add the directions for these crocheted hearts on my blog this weekend. These are quick and easy to make, A simple pattern to follow that I came up with. That is what I have been doing late at night just crocheting hearts :)
So many ideas to make with them and yes this is the season of LOVE
Pass it on
