The Newsprint Series: Danish Christmas Hearts

 

 Hjerter

Coeurs

Corazones

 

 To celebrate

the fact that we are going to spend the

holidays at home

(for once).

 

I decided to dip back into my

lovely  Danish Paper-Cut book

“Julepynt”

 

 (yes, yes)

Paper-Cut?

These don’t look like they have been made

from paper.

That’s because they are made from fabric.

The Newsprint fabric is from

Alice Kennedy’s Poppy Lane range.

I used it in another project.

 Remember?

 

The Newsprint Series: Hearts

 

 Remind me again…

Christmas Hearts with cross stitch on them?

They had the imaginative title

The Newsprint Series:

Hearts

Ah yes, I remember now.


The Newsprint Series: Danish Christmas Hearts

Well, these hearts are

a little different.

They are woven hearts.


(yes, yes)

They are quite rustic looking

aren’t they?

If you mean traditional, you’re not wrong.

Along with Christmas stars,

Danes are taught as children how to make

‘flettede hjerter’

for Christmas.

There are loads of

different heart patterns available,

but I kept it simple.

So braiding hearts isn’t new

to you then?

No,

but that doesn’t make them any less  

fun to make.

 

Especially,

if you choose the fabric versions

(instead of paper).

 

 (yes, yes)

Before you mention tutorial,

I am nearly on board with the idea.

I just need to…

 

Here’s to a wonderful day!

  1. Ooooooh … they’re pretty!
    Just how much newsprint fabric do you have, Heidi?!!!! You seem to be getting a lot of mileage out of it!!

  2. Another wonderful newsprint project, I agree with Fiona you are sure getting alot of mileage out of that fabric, and I sure am enjoying seeing all those wondeful projects if your ever in melbourne you’ll have to pop in to our craft group and teach us how to make little weaved hearts, to cute. Getting to spend Christmas at home does that mean Sydney or Denmark, I’m totally jealous if it’s Demark though could do with a holiday in Sydney even. hehe. Great post once again thanks Heidi

  3. Thank you!…I think I have enough for atleast another little Newsprint project(phew), then it’s back to the drawing board (boo).
    Last we spent the holidays running away from Cyclone Yasi & the floods in a leaky campervan, so we thought we would stay here in Sydney this year.
    We are keeping our fingers crossed for a lovely sunny one!
