I usually do more pics and less yakking, but I feel like I have to explain myself here. LOL. This project got outta hand. Fast. I just wanted a little pocket to put a present in.
It started out as a humble coffee filter that was INTENDED to be covered with a heart and wings. I had envisioned a simple paper heart with wings made out of old book pages that folded over each other and the heart. I was going to stitch the top of the pocket shut with a blanket stitch (after I had put a little sussie in it). It needed shred. Sheet music maybe?
Well, I then thought about shred and decided to use the words, "go confidently in the direction of your dream". And my printer was out of ink and they came out blue green and then it just snowballed from there.
Seriously, it just ran amok from there. The heart and wings ended up on card stock. Then I thought, well why not hang the silly thing. And of we went, racing willy nilly, throwing in green letters and vintage red flowers and a bit of trim and well...it really just got out of hand.
Even if it did get slightly out of hand.
