Hello!!! Can you believe it's February??? Oh, my!!!
In honor of a wonderful *Gala* I'll be attending in a few, short days, I have a project to share with you :)
I recently joined a little contest, hostessed by fellow MAMA artisan-extraordinaire Terri. She provided us with a pattern and no short amount of inspiration, and then set us on our way!
When I found this beautiful fabric, I knew I had to have it!!! It was a bit bright, so I threw it in a tea bath - which gave it just the right vintage tone :)
My heart is held closed by wrapping some crinkly (tea-dyed, as well!), seam binding around several times and securing with a bow. It reminds me of a delicate slipper.
I kept the heart's outside very simple and only added a few fabric flowers with vintage rhinestone centers.
It hangs from a pearl, pink and silver rosary chain.
For the inside, I knew I wanted to incorporate ruffles. I've left the edges of the ruffles raw to add softness and a rustic feel.
Vintage rhinestones and some hand beading add some sparkle. And, of course, it wouldn't be Marie without a crown!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
