Love Fabric Wallhanging

Hello friends! I'm sharing another project I made for CHA. This project features the Heartfelt Bigz Die. Bigz are steel rule dies…love them because you can cut all different kinds of surfaces from really thin to extra thick materials. You can cut materials like tissue paper, fabric, chipboard, cardstock, felt, metal, plastic, etc. It's almost like the skies the limit that's why I love them so much. 

 You all know how I love to sew and this project really sang to my "heart". I used my favorite fabric, Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements Fabric, this piece is called Shabby Script. Heartfelt Bigz die was perfect for my project cutting 11 different hearts of all shapes and sizes from wool felt. 

I added various stitching like the blanket stitch and a running stitch around the hearts to attach them to my background fabric. I used a few different colors of embroidery floss for interest. 

Vintage mother of pearl buttons are the perfect accent down the left side attaching them with different shades of floss. 

I also hand stitched the word "Love" in a dark floss and also sewed on a little vintage lace at the bottom. 

The new Tim Holtz Display Hanger was perfect to hold my little project. The package comes with 2 Display Hangers, 2 labels and 2 epoxy stickers. I added Remnant Rubs to the label, applied the epoxy sticker and label to the hanger  then alcohol inked the epoxy sticker using Mushroom (the best color for a little vintage look). The Crinkle Ribbon was dyed with a little Antique Linen Distress Spray Stain and then tied to the top of the hanger. 

I'd love to hear from you! 
Please let me know if you love to sew or you would like to learn to sew. 
What is your most favorite project that you have sewn or something you'd like to create. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Awesome job Richele. Love what you did here. Really, really it.

  2. I love hearts so (ofcourse) I have this die.So beautiful what you made with the hearts. I also love to quilt so you can be sure I'm gonna make something like this. Thank you for the inspiration. Keeping my fingers crossed that the display hangers will be soon in NL.

  3. Wow. I don't like to sew, but this makes me wish I did! This is so lovely. I was attracted to Tim's new hangers, but wondered what I would do. You found a lovely way! And I love the words (no pun intended) you used on it!

    I love this project!!!! From beginning to end, your attention to detail, and what it does for this particular piece...just lovely, throughout!

  9. What a beautiful way to use Tim's new hanger and fabric, it is beautifully feminine and romantic. I do love to sew but don't do much these days, although you make me want to create something now! My current favourite make was make-up bag/purse that I made for a friend at Christmas (using Tim's fabric of course). Anne x
