Project Twenty Two: Scrap Fabric Hanging Hearts
Ever since visiting Gothenburg in Sweden over Christmas I have been very into hearts as decorative features around the house (much to the silent dismay of the ever-patient, ever-tolerant boys). Over the past few days I have been having fun making little hanging hearts from my scrap fabric stash, and using my ribbon and button stash to embellish them.
I’m not happy though. It appears that, no matter what heart shape I draw, they never come out looking as good as the ones you can buy in shops. My hearts are a bit lopsided. I should just accept their imperfections and see it as a reflection of life in general, which is never perfect, but the girlie part of me wants perfect fabric hearts, dammit! If anyone knows what I am doing wrong, or what the secret to sewing perfect hearts is, please please please let me in on the secret!
