My heart is blue

In June, I had made some fabric hearts to hang on a rack that I had bought for my mother's bedroom. A friend of mine saw them as was so crazy about them that I asked her if she wanted me to make her a set.


I told her she could look through my fabric stash and choose some fabrics she liked. She wanted them to be blue as her bedroom is blue and white.


I used a mix of various ribbons and laces with a vintage button on each heart.


I am looking forward to giving them to her next week when I see her. Even though she knows I am making them for her, I am going to wrap them up in a gift bag with tissue paper. Now that this project is finished, I have to get back to my Secret Santa gift for an online friend and some SinterKlaas gifts for a couple of other friends.

Hi, Heidi! Those hearts are so sweet...I love making such things, and filling then with half lavender, half stuffing. The peg/rack you have the hearts having from is lovely! Happy weekend, my friend ((HUGS))
