Lavender hearts - applique and patchwork rosali

I rarely list hearts, as I feel there are so many out there, but it's so amazing how everyone's hearts are so different depending on the fabric and ribbon combinations used. I thought I'd list a few, starting with two today, and see if anyone likes them. I teamed the ever-popular Cath Kidston rosal print, appliqueing a heart onto a blue and white striped cotton for my first choice.

I had great fun doing this - I've made plenty of hearts for my lovely local shop, where they are always popular, and I always enjoy thinking of new ways to do them and raiding my ribbons and buttons for those added extra touches.

I haven't got very much of the ribbon I used on this one left, which is a shame, as it's one of my favourites.

My second heart is a patchwork one, with added embellishment from a gorgeous cotton lace, threaded with ribbon. I had to add a little of the rosali to this one as well.

Patchwork hearts are lovely, as you never quite know how they will turn out.

I hope you like. They are well padded, and include generous amounts of lavender from my local organic lavender farm, providing a lovely smell when squeezed gently. Please contact me if you'd like to buy one.
