Shabby Heart and Pin Cushion by DT Member Heidi

Hello Heidi here today to share my very first DT Project for Shabby is Chic Boutique on Zibbet.
Of course in February the majority of us turn to hearts, flowers and chocolate but my February includes beautiful laces, trim and pretty things from Amy Love at Shabby is Chic Boutique .

Below my very first design team project, created from a paper mache’ “puffy” heart I painted with gesso and layered a beautiful pink lace from SCB. Following that up with a finely stitched pink trim and multi strand  flat back pearl trim and other pearl bling.


Listed after this heart you’ll see a pincushion upcycled from an old tin I had, I layered it with rosette trim and box pleat trim from SCB I also found a gorgeous gimp trim and bridal applique and more pearl from the store.


I need to mention as well the donation of buttons and butterfly from two very special women to me, Bonnie, Michelle, thanks ladies, you are wonderful. xx

I hope you enjoy the projects from my very first foray into being a design team member and thank you so much Amy Love for having faith in me and believing I had something to contribute to your team.
Have a wonderful day!


  1. Thanks Michelle, Kim and Betty, I appreciate your compliments very much!!

  2. Heidi, You have a very unique style which I love. I so wish there was a process video for both of these projects.
