SHABBY CHIC LOVELIES


...today i'm sharing my makes from my WOYWW 147 desk...


...a style i'm really drawn to especially in our crafting world is Shabby Chic for it allows slight imperfections and that tattered look is what makes it endearing...




...the linen heart...




...the raffia bow is secured in place by stitching...


...there they are two little Shabby Chic loVelies...

...I was inspired to get the sewing machine out by Jan @ http://jansartyatcjourney.blogspot.co.uk/  she had made a rather cute hand sewn fabric tag for Tag Tuesday...check out her blog it's very inspiring...

...thank you for stopping by...

  11. Gorgeous, I find it difficult to get a reasonable heart shape, it either is lopsided or goes sort of ruched when I sew it!!
    Thanks for becoming a follower, you made my day! SuzanneX
