This is a sweet little heart using one of my fusible vintage images, my rayon dyed tape and lace bits from my Etsy Site - RibbonSmyth. I love recycling old cotton ticking. This little heart is 8" and being send to a dear friend in Connecticut. I have the heart hanging from an old tool box, that is hanging on the stone wall in our loft bathroom. Have to make more! Valentine's Day will be here quickly!
