Drop cloth Heart

Hearts, Love and Roses….

Hearts, love and roses mean Valentine!  There’s definitely love at the Charmer and  I have dishes with roses on them to use in a vignette I am pulling together.    I decided to make a heart to include in the vignette.

It is a very easy project (like those lately) and I pleased with how it turned out.

I cut a heart out of a left over piece of drop cloth, and placed a layer of natural cotton batting inside, next I and stitched about 1/2″ inside the out side line of the heart. Note: You’ll see the cotton batting which I like.

Next I took 2 1/2″ strips of red tickling, twisted the tickling and laid out in a heart shape.  The top part of the ticking heart I made in the shape of a knot, I slipped stitched it to the drop cloth. Very quick to do.

I added a button later, so some pictures have it, some don’t.

So what do you think?

I’m thinking pretty cute for such an easy project!

    Yes ma’am, it’s the little touches like this that spice things up. I like that it adds some texture as well as brings the heart “to the table”. Your rose plates are fabulous as well. It’s all so sweet together.
