Last night the bug hit me...no, not the flu bug, but that thing where you just have to make something.
Mr. Fanatic was out of town and our daughter was doing homework and I heard my craftroom calling. Once upstairs, I started
digging looking through boxes of fabric and found several yards of fabric that my grandmother made me a dress out of when I was about 8 years old. That would make it vintage fabric, no? If things from the 60's are considered vintage, then that would make me... oh, never mind.
I found everything needed to make this fun Valentine project in my craft room, so I didn't have to spend a penny.
With no plan in mind I used my pinking shears to cut the hearts out of the vintage fabric, found some leftover quilting felt and sewed it all up together like a sandwich. Once the pieces were sewn together, I cut the edges with my pinking shears. Then I went to my
hoard boxes of ribbon and found some shiny string(that's the fancy name for it) and some burlap ribbon and glued it on the heart.
I had the bare branches in mind when I made them. These branches have had decorations on them for 3 seasons now. Gotta love it when something you have can be changed up for seasons and holidays.
So what do you call that thing you get when you just HAVE to make something?
