I've signed up for a swap on Art-Ventures the only requirements are "you can make anything at all so long as its heart shaped...any media at all - metal, shrinky plastic, wood, shipboard, fabric...but it must be an actual heart in shape and be decorated". I decided to play with fabric, ribbons, lines, buttons, etc. I've been inspired by Yitte's creations.
I started with "string" quilting the lower half. And on top of the heart, applique linens over quilted muslin. Sewed eyelet ribbon around the heart and added some decorative ribbon in the middle.
Made wings by sewing decorative lace over muslin, added a key to make a "butterfly". Added paper flowers, beads, buttons, keyhole charm and printed ribbon.
