The Newsprint Series: Hearts

 

 

 

In my bid to get ready for

 

Christmas

Jul

Natal

 

I have come up with a little series called

 

'Newsprint'.

 

 

Today's craftling is the my first offering.

Tell me more!


You know how much I like

hanging decorations

 

 

 

I do,

you drool whenever you see some.

 

I do not!

What's

the longest river in North Africa?

PPtttpp!

 

 

Getting back to my Newsprint Series;

I have made some hearts.

I see that, I like the fabric.


Isn't it great?!


It's by Alice Kennedy

'Newsprint in White'

from her Poppy Lane range.

 

 

The red lettering (cross stitch) is by my fair hand.

It looks a little neat for you…

 Cheeky!

 

 

But you are right,

it's way too neat to be a freehand;

 

 

I tacked some left over Permin linen

from the Reindeer Tablemats over the fabric for precision,

then simply cross stitched over the top.

 

 

 

Smart eh?

It makes sense now.

Do

you plan on using this fabric again?

 

 

For sure,

but I may widen the 'Newsprint' scope a little,

to make things interesting.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Hey there Sandi!
    The center of the hearts are cross stitched. I used some linen ontop of the fabric to help sew the lettering on (keeps things tidy). I will try and take some photos of the process next time.
    xxh

  2. Oh I do love these! Really love the newsprint fabric. I used to work where we sold fabric and don’t think I ever saw any as cute as what you used in making these awesome hearts. I could see cutting out a piece of the fabric and framing it as is it’s so pretty! 🙂
