Vintage Valentine Creation

This is a cute wall hanging I made for our house the other day. It was so quick and fun to do! I had just been dying to use this cute red striped fabric I bought so this is what I came up with.

I dyed a white silk carnation with coffee to give it an aged look and added it to one corner of the sign. I used really large red rick rack as a hanger and tied pink and white striped fabric strips and sparkly red tulle to it after I stitched it onto the sign.

I layered vintage dotted Swiss fabric, floral print patterned scrapbook paper, and a vintage Valentine image and stitched them to the sign. I added some fun trims, vintage appliques, and wooden bingo markers.

I made the base of the sign out of chipboard. Then I cut,tore, and frayed the fabric so it would cover the chipboard with some "hanging over" the edges.

Then I stitched the 2 together with some haphazard layers of stitching and added the embellishments!

I love how it turned out, and now I have several more I want to make! Valentines Day is sneaking up so quickly! I have several gifts I need to get working on too! I share them as I finish them.

Don't for get about the February Special in my shop. (see previous post for details) Be sure to head on over there today, I've added some new goodies!
