Yes, I´m late, very late, but squeezing into February a project I had completed for Valentine´s Day and just couldn´t find the time to post about.
I wanted to make something romantic for the special day, with lots of hearts and flowers or similar, and what could be better than this, err, door draught stopper?
I had seen the project in a magazine at the library and had all the necessary fabrics on hand, mainly natural linen and some pretty reds .
I had lots of really tiny red scraps in my stash which one would think were useless but which were perfect, so makes you wonder just what size we can actually throw away and not save.
I hand embroidered a couple of hearts in red thread and stitched around all the applique hearts with blanket stitch and added a bit of trim and red buttons to decórate.
This was a fun project and although it doesn´t fit in my gift box, it will be stored away and gifted at a later day.
Hopefully next year I´ll make something a little more romantic.
