Sometimes all you need to create the atmosphere you’re looking for is a small, sweet touch. This shabby chic stuffed hanging ornament may be just the thing.
The front and back are cut from a vintage dress, pale pink cloth overlaid with grey lace. It was firmly stuffed with cotton batting. On the front is an embellishment composed of a frill of delicate trim from a vintage baby dress, a vintage shell button, and a satin rose. At the bottom is attached a vintage glass drop bead with a few additional beads. A loop of satin ribbon for hanging is sewn at the top embellished with a bow and another satin rose.
Hang this on a wardrobe or dresser knob, or spritz with linen water and tuck into a drawer as a sachet. It makes a lovely gift for anyone appreciative of vintage finery. Consider this for brides, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, to brighten a sickroom, or add a pretty touch to baby’s nursery.
