This past Saturday, Amie from Kittycats and Airplanes came to my house for another crafty play date. We had bounced ideas via email about Valentine's crafts and decided on little satin hearts. I showed Amie how to make the hearts following the same method I used to make Christmas ornaments. We picked a smaller heart shape. Instead of hand-stitching the opening, we used a special foot and topstitched them
Here they are all naked, but not for long
It was time to beautify them. My ruffler foot got another workout with lace and organza. Then we plugged the glue guns and dug up in beads, buttons, ribbons, lace, glitter and even feathers and decorated them. We ran short of time so 2 of them were not finished when Amie had to head home but this is what came out of our combined efforts.
Here are the ones I trimmed, all 6 now finished.
This one is my favorite, Amie got the idea and I loved it so much I had to have one too...
A fun afternoon for both of us. Next installment soon. We already picked a date for next month. I can't wait !!
PS: Have you seen the GFC counter?? Almost 250!! Amie kindly agreed to craft something special for a giveaway to celebrate this milestone. I'm psyched!!
