Grunge Heart

This time I wanted to return to a distressed look and make a heart with a grunge look. Made in tattered denim and repaired with metallic lurex fabric and machine-stitched darning.

Padded Heart with Crochet

I worked some free form crochet while stitching it to the heart as decoration.  I think that the addition of beads and sequins could be nice too.

I really like the idea of creating hearts that look repaired, mended and healed.  Also the concept of something once broken but now repaired and somehow much stronger for it.

Denim on Denim – Appliqued Heart and Stitches

I love the distressed denim look as well as embroidered denim so I thought I would try appliqueing a denim heart.  It’s very soft light denim so it wasn’t too much trouble to stitch through the layers.

 

 

 

 

 

Lace Heart

I am obsessed with hearts at the moment and experimenting with ways of using my explorations into free form crochet with pre-loved fabrics to discover ways to make and decorate them.
