As soon as I saw these new Ornamental Flowers stamps they instantly made me think of Scandinavian folk art patterns. A quick search through Pinterest (is there ever a quick search on there?) came up with lots of gorgeous patterns, most of them red on white backgrounds and very simple designs.
I thought I might have a go at creating my own on a fabric heart by Canvas Corp.
I stamped the design in a block pattern in red ink and drew free hand borders around the images. Some of the images I stamped off the fabric to make it look as though I’d cut the heart from a much bigger piece of fabric.
Canvas Corp canvas shapes are double layered so it was easy to open a small hole in the side and push in some wadding. I went around the whole heart on the sewing machine with a red thread to close it up again.
A few buttons and some red ribbon later and it was finished.
