All about hearts pouch
Yesterday I finished off this project. I've been ill all week and totally frustrated i couldn't do anything! As I mentioned in a previous post I've been following some lessons I purchased from Jude Hill. Very inspirational! To practice I decided to make a nine patch of hearts similar to one she has done. I love the different techniques she uses. I wove different antique linens together then I used her 'invisible basting' method to hold them in place. As Jude says once you've done this you can have several layers of fabric together which then behave as one. The I chose my diferent fabrics for the hearts and in some squares I added a different fabric for the background. So much fun. Then all that was left to do was embellish with stitches!! I've decided to send this little pouch to mum I think she will really love it. She loves to have things to keep pieces of her sewing projects in, so this can be added to her collection. I may have to make one for myself to and I can't wait to find the time to develop my own things with her techniques.
