Textile Hearts

They make beautiful textiles here in Mexico. I can drool a lot when I'm around them. A couple of old purses I had were finished their duty as money carriers and as I looked at them today I saw hearts. So I experimented with one. I didn't get the curves on the top of the heart done very well, but I can see they have possibilities. I used the fringe from the bottom of the bag as the hanger and sewed some milagros on. I think  I might make another couple.  Here's my first attempt.

That's it for today.  Nice seeing you here.  Take care.
