#15 of 52 projects

#15 Components: Heart cut out of dragon/flame fabric (the same print used for Puft Heart #2) and appliquéd along with a scrap onto red felt. The fabric scrap landed on the floor in the exact shape I ended up using. Embellishment is foam heart painted black with highlights of Gold Treasure. This piece didn’t come to life until it was edge stitched with black thread.

Learned: Applique is not only fun but can create an elegant statement. Tip: paint any pre-cut foam shape with acrylic paint, this tones down the bright colors they often come in.
