In honor of valentines day I am posting a couple of small projects with romantic themes.
First are three small hearts (~4 in.) for a hearts for a Dollstreet Dreamers heart exchange. Each heart is made with a different African wax print fabric that I hand drew and then machine stitched. I painted each portrait with kissing lips using Jacquard acrylic fabric paints and added detail with Micron and gel pens. I embroidered X’s and O’s, the traditional letters representing hugs and kisses on each heart. I then embellished each piece with beads collected from South Africa and the United States.
