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 of the ornament is made from a carefully saved piece of vintage cotton embroidered pillowcase. The reverse is vintage white cotton dimity. It is firmly stuffed with cotton batting. At the bottom is stitched a small string of repurposed beads. A loop of satin ribbon for hanging is sewn at the top embellished with a bow and a repurposed pearl bead.
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.
