Puffy Hearts

I made these puffy hearts for a swap.   I had originally envisioned myself creating a wild, bright, funky, colorful assortment of hearts ... in reality I ended up making a more traditional, somewhat Victorian style assortment of hearts.

You have to follow the path that your muse lays out for you & that is where my muse went this weekend.

The hearts were made from cotton and velvet fabrics with lace, ribbon, ric-rack, machine stitching, hand embroidery, glass and plastic beads, and buttons. They measure about 4" across and just under 5" tall.

I hope they are enjoyed by the swappers who receive them.   I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!


  1. Very adorable. I like the colour scheme you ended up going with.
