Summer Hearts


Hi! I just had to show you the finished lavender hearts!


You'll remember seeing the bits and pieces...


The trims....

sold



The vintage pins....


This is how they look when they're finally done:

sold

Vintage French linen:


 French ticking...both with Bakelite buttons!


Larger "pillows" about 6" x 7"...some of my buyers have used these as weding ring/ ringbearer pillows. A charming heirloom, I hope....

  


Also fun on the sofa or porch swing---they'll make your rooms smell so delightful, like a summery cottage garden....

               

And the sweetest vintage hanky bags, just like my mom and I made when I was a tiny girl....

  1. Each and every one is so beautiful. I don't sew very well but have been trying to make my own little heart sachets. I use a bit of polyfil mixed with lavender (hard to get dried lavender around here -- I found mine at Pottery Barn but don't know if they have it now). Those little hanky sachets are so sweet. Have a wonderful day. Tammy
