In the new issue of Somerset Studio Gallery you’ll see some hearts that I made using denim scraps and such (the article includes the how-to instructions).
Here’s a mini pillow that can be used as a Christmas tree ornament.
This heart has a sweet message of everlasting love.
And on the side of this heart I decided to repeatedly “tie the knot” all along the heart’s edge to represent marriage.
Below are two more hearts.
Here’s a close-up of another one in a pillow form.
This time the love message is handwritten. And I chose to highlight the words by surrounding them with contrasting bits of light and dark elements…
…such as this pin holding shiny rounds of this n’ that.
Below is a look at a flat heart.
This time the message of love is more subtle. I did this by adding hand stitched x’s and buttons for 0′s.
Lastly, here’s a hanging heart that I made using a scrap of denim mounted onto corrugated cardboard.
This piece celebrates our home…
…which is where the heart is.
Wishing you much love in your hearts and home.
