Naked hearts

Starting to embellish three hearts for Chain of Hearts group!
It's been a while since I tackled any for swapping with this group,so I thought I'd better prove I'm doing "something".
As I said last night on the CoH message board----Sandie gets first dibs if she's interested.

The first heart features some thread lace made with Solvy.
The second and third hearts have faces added for extra texture and interest.
And yes,more embellishing will occur!

Latest project

I've taken a little break from hearts to make this tobacco pouch for my best friend. It's a birthday gift. I tried a few new stitches and combinations on this piece, and I'm really happy with the way it's turned out. It's not finished yet, so watch this space.


my first postcard

My first postcard. I am quite pleased with it, but having seen others I think the more "abstract" pics are better,so I shall now attemt to make more........Margaret

More hearts

Here is the last few hearts i've made.
I've also had a few requests for bags, so I guess I'll have to get the sewing machine out sometime and get to making.


Mistake turned into masterpiece?!

As some of you are just venturing into more fabric manipulation,I thought you might like to see what happened when Di planned one thing and another resulted!

"I think I might make this the front cover of my journal.I layered scraps of fabric over acrylic felt,then I covered them with "what I thought was" a chiffon scarf,did FME all over,and burnt back the layers.BUT instead of the chiffon melting,the felt did.I was beside myself until I turned it upside down to see the damage-a very nice crunchy piece.
Then over the top of the stitching I rubbed gold shiva stitck."
