I have always loved doodling hearts. This piece is one of a series of little mini textile art pieces featuring hearts.
I was inspired by Victorian love tokens and folk art for these pieces, but wanted to bring them up to date in terms of colour and design.
This piece features a hand tie dyed purple/pinkvelvet heart as the central feature. It has been stitched on top of two other layers, a bright turquoise and a dark pink floral, each of which have been embroidered with loops and curves in metallic and glitter threads. Each layer has been stitched onto the other and intricately cut with small scissors.
This piece comes framed and is ready to gift to someone as a Valentines, engagement, wedding or anniversary gift.
This piece has been made using cotton, cotton velveteen and wool blend felt and stitched in freehand machine embroidery with glitter and metallic threads.
The actual embroidery measures 8cm x 8cm approx and has been stitched onto a white cotton twill back before mount and frame added. The finished size of the textile art picture is 20cm x 20cm.
