Red velvet heart.

Project Description

What was your inspiration? I just love spotting vintage, handmade little treasures like this at antique fairs.

What you will need

  • This gorgeous red heart is ideal for hanging on a door handle
  • dressing table drawer handle
  • or on a wall. I have handmade it from vintage velvet fabric
  • I have made it in a rather niave style
  • to make it seem like an old treasure
  • that you would find in an antique shop. This is a one of a kind
  • as most of the various things I have put on it
  • were old things I have found
  • and cannot be repeated. I have attached various goodies
  • a vintage brooch that has seen better days
  • little pictures have been sewn on
  • there are vintage buttons
  • vintage bits of jewellery and beads
  • and some new little things. The heart measures 6" at its tallest
  • and 6.5" at its widest. Total height is about 14". It is filled with new flame proof filling.
