February = Hearts (of course)

 These are my little fabric hearts made for an Aussie swap with some friends spread across the country.  (You can see what Nic and Jacky have made here and here).

Mine are made with white fabric that has been stamped, masked and sprayed (a lovely heart shaped mask and Glimmer Mist in Coffee Shop both by Tattered Angels) and have some iron-on fleece in the middle to get a bit of "puff".  I forced myself to loosen up and do some pretty random machine stitching around the heart shapes before adding the extra layers and embellishments on the front. 

And this week I received these two fabric ATCs from a trade with Chantal from France. 

 These are my ATCs for Chantal - one has a sun printed fabric base with two overlays of different tulle and some small fabric embellishment rectangles (it is actually a lot brighter than the scan shows) and the other is an extra from an earlier ATC swap and is based on woven ribbons.
