I have been busy moving my sewing room, yes the one I was just setting up in my new home on the 2nd floor, to a room on the 1st floor. I had to paint, and move boxes that are still being emptied, and I still don’t have all of my fabric down there. But for the most part it is functional. I will give you a peak in another post. For now, I want to share a small project I did today.
This is my stash of scraps. I’m sure yours is the same, strips from squaring up fabric and other small pieces that are too large to throw away…….
Not very organized I know! It actually did start out organized at one point, but this is where we are today….maybe another day. So on with the story, I keep looking at this container full of a lot of small strips and pieces, and I keep telling myself that some day I am going to do something fun with them. Well, today must have been the day. And I hardly made a dent!
This is what I made. As I was going through my sewing and crafts containers and boxes, I came across some metal heart frames.
You can see here that I had three of these metal heart frames. I used the small one above, and still have the double heart, and large heart below ready and waiting!
I have been storing these hearts for years. Way, way back, in the ’80’s (so I am giving my age away) these wire forms were pretty popular. We sewed strips of fabric into tubes that we slipped on these wire forms. We gathered them up so that there was a large amount of fabric bunched together, and formed a wreath. Instead of using them that way, I decided to make a rag heart wreath from my stash of light spring colors. It was a fairly quick project, and didn’t require any sewing.
I am very pleased with the end result. I think that this is such a cute wreath for spring, Mother’s Day, or to use in a baby’s room.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing, take care!
