I was given the opportunity once again to create a heart keepsake from vintage fabric. I love working with vintage fabric. The history, the colors, the texture, the sentimental value makes it so endearing.
This yard or so of well worn, or as I like to say, "well loved" vintage fabric, in aqua and avocado, had seen better days.
I selected the best area for the pattern, wanting to be sure I could show the lovely flower pattern. Included with the fabric were several original fabric covered buttons. I just had to incorporate these into the finished keepsake. The vintage buttons made the keepsake heart complete.
As a finishing touch I added a new silk ribbon in aqua for a wonderful contrast.
The beauty of vintage fabric.....endures.
