Unfinished …… Valentine Card

sewn card

It was meant as a Valentine, but I didn’t go any further with it.  I think I had just acquired an old singer sewing machine for £7 from E-bay and I was just playing.
So ….. I very lightly pencilled a heart shape on  linen effect card and went over it several times on the machine, veering over the lines, not being very careful at all, I love the knotted tangled effect of the haphazard sewing.
I punched a couple of holes in the card and knotted East of India ribbon through them. On one of the bows I have attached a rusty old gold safety pin and a brass padlock charm.  I have to admit, I quite like it!
