Scotties are perfect for silhouettes and Scottie silhouettes are perfect for Valentine’s Day decorations.
I made this wall hanging with a vintage Christmas card as my inspiration. I drew the various pieces on Steam-A-Seam Double Stick Lite Fusible Web, then fused them to the bits of fabric. I cut out the various pieces of the design and arranged them on an applique mat before fusing them to the background fabric. They were stitched in place with invisible thread and a narrow zigzag stitch. I added some strips and borders to complete the piece and did some very simple quilting.
A few years ago, I made this wall hanging for the kitchen.
The background of the heart is a pretty scene from a calendar that was scanned and then printed on June Tailor Sew In Colorfast Fabric. The Scottie also was inspired by a greeting card and was fused onto the piece and stitched with invisible thread. The block is STATE FAIR from Judy Martin’s Stars and Sets software.
Last year, I made a hanging using a pineapple block with a center showing a silhouette of a 1930s era woman and her Scottie.
This was scanned from a vintage reverse painting on glass.
Scottie silhouettes are also good on greeting cards. My daughter made these two cards for me on past Valentine’s Days.
I love Scotties, I love silhouettes and I love Valentine’s Day!
