Watercolour Heart Strings

This project was so much fun!  I especially enjoyed the crayon resist. And I got to combine two of my favourite things - painting and stitching :)

Here are my hearts, before I cut them out. I was so happy that the wax resist worked out so well! I totally underestimated the difficulty in seeing the white on white, but the end result was lovely.


Next I cut the heart shapes out, and painted patterns on the other side.



Finally I strung the hearts together with some variegated embroidery thread. I added an extra stitch at the top of each heart to hold it firm. I really loved how it all turned out!


Now the string of hearts it is hanging happily next to our back door :) Thanks Lucie for such a fun project!
