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 cloth for the diamond is vintage cotton and it is firmly stuffed with cotton batting. Overlaying it on the front is a scrap of incredibly fragile vintage lace. A tiny piece of cotton embroidered with roses is appliquéd in the center surrounded by vintage cotton lace trim. At the bottom and outer corners a single vintage glass drop bead is attached. A loop of satin ribbon for hanging is sewn at the top embellished with an antique shell button.
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.
