A Warm Heart :: my hottie challenge

This is my design for Cam's Hottie Challenge this year.
I'm joining in with lots of other crafters to make a hottie cover,
functional or not (mine is not!). All the hotties will be exhibited at the
Open Drawer Gallery in Melbourne and sold with proceeds going to
the Margaret Pratt Foundation Heart Lung Transplant Trust.

This hottie feels like its taken ages, when its only been a few days!
The background is vintage wallpaper/cloud fabric at the top.
The curtains are made from vintage curtain fabric -
we've had a bit of a curtain nightmare around here recently,
 so maybe thats why they were in my head...!
Thats supposed to be a curtain rail at the top, and then her hair is
flowing over that into the sky.
Her hair and face is free motion sewn (thread drawing) and her skirt is a bit 3D!

She holds a warm heart - made from wool rug.
And her eyes shine bright.

If you'd like to join in the Hottie Challenge -
sign up here!

ps. if you look closely - her neck is actually part of the vintage wallpaper design!xx

That is just the sweetest hottie cover.
Such a wonderful idea and a very worthy cause.
