Love in the window

A little project for a Valentine.
Put it in a window or add to a greeting card for a pretty gift.
So easy and yet effective.
Using a sheer background shows off the heart nicely.
Here is what I used
organdy square,
burlap cut to heart.
torn toile ribbon,
small scrap of red ticking,
scrap of torn scrim
a word,
I embroidered mine but you could stamp it or cut from an old card or something.
Dark color sewing thread.
Layer and sew together to form an applique, tie a one loop bow with the toile and sew to the heart.
Voila! Hope you create some.
