Summer Hearts

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

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

The trims....


The vintage pins....

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



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
