Crafting Heartily

Heart outside.

Heart inside.


Two hearts.


Having itchy fingers and wanting a change from doing papercrafts and cross-stitch I decided to make some lavender hearts. As I am not a seamstress and am yet to master the sewing machine I hand sewed the hearts using a running stitch. The hearts are made from upholstery fabric and topped with wool felt hearts and shell buttons. They are a little 'shabby chic' for my taste but I did enjoy the process of making them.


I recently received some tags/awards from fellow bloggers. I don't do tags/awards as I can't keep up with who has had them/done them/ doesn't do them etc, however I would like to say thank you to those who nominated me; Driftwood, Nimblejacks and Summerfete. Their blogs are a joy to read.

Hi Simone, you did a great job. I love the hearts. I've been wanting to make some lavendar sachets too. I bought the lavender but that is as far as I've gotten.

Really sweet vintage-looking sachets - love the pretty floral fabric you have used. Great in the old smalls drawer or on the Christmas tree as you've shown!

ps my plaster is off...yippee..I am now free to hobble around. The nice slim ankle I once had, is gone, I just hope that the swelling goes. I tried to walk in my heels...I just could not do it, I walked that Dick Emery Walk if you know what I mean.
