DIY Lavender Hearts16:48
I have signed up the the stash busting challenge of 2013 over at Cation Designs. I have pledged to use 50 % of my fabric stash in 2013....
The January Challenge was to tackle scraps.
I had a huge overflowing bag so sorted through it, recycled the stuff that was too small or rubbish fabric and got to work on some of the rest.
I made 4 lavender door hangers / wardrobe hangers, 4 pairs of pants (underwear briefs not trousers so not pictured!) and a string of bunting for my daughters room (but she won't let me put it up because she doesn't like it...).
For the scented hearts I printed a heart from word, I just inserted the heart then changed it so it was the shape I wanted then printed. I then cut the hearts with pinking shears (mine are a bit blunt so didn't give the crisp edge) and sewed them together leaving an inch gap at the top then inserted some lavender and stuffing to pad them out. I sewed the gap closed with a loop of ribbon in between the layers.
Not sure what I am going to do with the rest of the scraps but I can't bear to chuck them!!
Linking up to Cation Designs and some other fab linky parties!
