I've had so much fun making these hearts for family and friends!

I started with a little package of Kaffe Fassett  fabrics. Then cut them in strips and sewed them randomly together.  Next cut out a cardboard heart as pattern and cut away!

I tried to show a close up so you could see the strips of Sari silks and laces sewn to the hearts.

And the embellishments of pieces of jewelry. I keep a bag of discarded jewelry, then take them apart to use on different projects.

February is my Birthday Month, so have been having fun Celebrating.  Although with the bad weather we have been having the "Partying" has been spread out more than usual!


  1. They are lovely Marlynne.Enjoy your birthday month.xx

  2. I saw your comment on Bohemian Vahalla & decided to check out your Precious Cottage! Be assured, I will be back. Didn't have time to scroll down too far or check out your other blog, but every creative juice in me(not that I have too many....only visions all kinds of stuff) was stimulated. I believe you are living my dream :)

    I have many, many misc. pieces of Currier & Ives and recently dispensed of 12 extra cups and saucers, so of course yours caught my eye....

  3. Oh how wonderful!! What a fun gift to receive. I too keep jewelry for this type of purpose.
