Hello Unity friends...
here, sharing a sweet little Valentine's Day project with you today...
My source of inspiration is from Pinterest! No doubt...it seems to be my
"go to" for all sorts of inspiration.
I love the natural & primitive heart look, so I thought it would be great to incorporate
for natural dyeing using avocado skins (who knew?) & stamping
for a sweet Valentine's Day gift!
I used the natural dyeing technique for the outer part of the heart.
It's a beautiful lighter shade of pink.
I have more material, lace, and ribbon that I dyed in various shades.
For darker shades of pink, you can keep the materials in the dye for a bit longer!!
Also, the natural color of your material with the avocado skin will help intensify the color
which I just L-O-V-E!!!
The center heart was dyed using a tea bag, then stamped with my favorite quote.
Love that this stamp was made into a heart!
Later, I handstitched, filled the heart with batting, and I added a few drops of scented oil.
I'll be tucking this into a little square box, and adding the small handmade tag
to the the box to make a nice gift!
Hope this inspires you...
If you don't happen to sew, you can use your dyed material, lace, or ribbons
along with your Unity stamps
to make a card, tag, layout, or a mixed media project!!
Unity stamps sets used for my project today...
Have a super fabulous day!
Hugs & Smiles,
