vintage red hearts
i found this darling little red leather heart case on etsy a few months ago. it just had my name on it....
it was made by beauty mate in west germany and held a little red handled manicure set, only one little piece is left inside. i think i want to turn it into a little needle case.
these are the new ruffles i made today. there is something just so relaxing about sewing up yards and yards of lovely red ruffles and then rolling them carefully up in a wheel of paper ruffles.
this crepe paper was made by the dennison company in the 1930's. it is a huge sheet of bricks to decorate a chimney i think. i cut the rows apart so each ruffle would have a little band of 'mortar' along the edges.
i have plans for a few more valentines to make this week, how about you?
