Sweetheart Pillow

Last evening I put on a favourite old movie (hello, Doris Day), took some of those scrappy heart blocks I stitched earlier this month, and got busy.
 
Love the pairing of scrappy patchwork hearts and this sweet pink background fabric which is covered with dots and tiny hearts (it's from the Ric Rac Rabbits line).
 
Lucky for me, I had just enough red ball fringe (from a long ago thrift store visit), to trim this sweet pillow. 


 Actually, several thrift store materials went into this project - lovely red corduroy for the back(remainders from making this bag) and a bright pink invisible zipper for a clean finishI love that I have stashed so many zippers from thift store shopping, that I usually can find exactly what I need for any project.

I couldn't resist adding a snippet of a sweet bunny as a label (it's also from the Ric Rac Rabbits fabric line).

My latest finish is now adding a happy touch of colour and patchwork to our living room, while being a lovely testament to the magic of scraps (and thift store finds ;o).

  2. I was wondering what those cute heart blocks were going to become. It just goes to show that lovely things can be made from some pretty scraps mixed with thrift store treasures.
