more fun with menswear

December 10, 2010

With all of the fabric leftover from my menswear wreath, it was just at the forefront of my consciousness this week:  what other pretty thing could I whip up quickly?

Since I’ve been mildly obsessed with making little paper collage designs lately, it seemed like an easy transition to use fabric.  So I cut three plump hearts from heavy paper (aka junk mail) and set to work. 

To make it interesting, I used the seams I had salvaged from the original shirts rather than the plain fabric, because I liked the interesting textures.

I used the front shirt pocket fabric to cover the back side and added a little embellishment on the back and at the bottom.

They add a touch of sweetness on the tree or on a doorknob.

    And I absolutely LOVE how you used the seams to add texture – how creative!
