My Tatted Lace Heart

I saw another wonderful blog this weekend that showed how to make these hearts out of lace and I made one today. I have so much lace, I could make hundreds of these. I loved making them and want to make more. I used silk ribbon in the bow and added my tatting in the middle. A wide piece of satin ribbon trimmed in pearls was also added around the middle of the heart just to add some sheen to the piece. The heart measures about 7 inches by 6 inches, so it is a good size. I am getting ready to go into a consignment shop and, hopefully, these will sell. I used a sewing machine to make this, but you could probably use hot glue, also. If you are interested in knowing where I found this blog with the instructions, just let me know.
