I had to made a present for one of my friends, she loves my big heartshapes earrings, and she wants to have one, only not a earring, because she always were the same.
So we were agree that it must be a version for a keyholder. Its of fabric, only you can't see that no more and you can't feel it .
Its very solid and smooth. Because of the proces with i uses. Its me own proces, but there will be other solutions too.:-D
And of course you can use other things to clue on the shape or just paint him.
I hope that you will have fun with the making of this.:-D
take a piece of paper and a pencil. draw wings and a heart or use my shapes.
put the heart shape and the wing on the fabric.
Outflank the pattern with the pencil.
You must outflank the heart 2 x and the wings 4 x. for one heart.
Attention you must add some seam, and then cut it this out the fabric.
First begin with the wings, lay two part on each other and sew them togther. Let the side which is straight open.
cut of the seam small to the stiches, so you can easily turnoutside and you will behold the curves of the stiches.
You can do this by hand, but you can use a sewing machine too.
Fill the wings with polyesther filling, Fill the wings still full. Use carefully the siccors for the filling.
cut a piece of 2 inches or 5,5 cm of the ribbon .
Pin with the sewing pins the wings on one of the heart shape fabric, the wings must be look inside, Not outside.
I have sew them right down with the pins with the sewing machine, Thats awefull tricky, you can better sew them first by hand with some stiches on the heart and then sew them with the sewingmachine.
Fold the ribbon in two and lay them precisely in the middell of the heart. and sew this together.
and sew this together.
And too, you must be carefull the fold of the bow is downside to the point of the heart. The open sides are against the seam of the heartpattern.
You can see i've you fold the wings outside, they must sit on the right position.
Lay the seccond heart shape fabric on the other, pin them together and sew it.
Let a piece open, i have done that just under the first wing and the to the point of the heart..
Cut of the seam and make a litlle cut in the middle of the heart near by the stiches.
And turn the inside out.
And turn the inside out.
Fill the heart.
sew the gate closed by hand with a few stiches.
Now i haven't very good pict of this=S you must pick up a bruch and add with the bruch a thick layer of wood glue.
I use for this project allways the better ones.
I had before less expensive ones, but it wasn't so great after all. The fabric must be hard and smooth.
For the better marks that will work, the others less.
You must put three or four layers on both sides and the wings too.
so you have become a hard and smooth layer, and feel no more the structure of the fabric.
If you klick on the pict you see that the fabric is under a thick layer of several layers glue.
paint the wings on both side, i have used some peral shell paint. And too you must if you choose of this kind of paint add several layers.
Without is much less work
Now the fun part.
You see i have some old magazines under neat my project, to keep the floor clean, but too for the glitter part. If you uses glitter fold a paper in two and then you go one with your glitter work.
When you are finished you can fold carefuly the paper and put the left over glitter in the bottle .
On this pict i have add again a thick layer of wood glue with a brush.
When the glue is still wet straw the glitters on the glue.
the layer of glitter must be thick too.
When its dry, you must seal the glitter layer with layers clear nailpolish.
So much layers that you have a thick smooth glossy surface.
Watch out your nailpolisch is at the end no longer clear.;-D You can see that on the pict.LOL
In between i have made a pict for this project, i have put the ealy stage of it on this site so you can use it too i've you want, but you can of course use your one picts or drawing.
When i had made it on the right measures i printed it out.
with lots of sharpys and other stuff i make it more kitschy.;-D
just like this.;-D
Wehn you have done this, cut it out.
glue the pict with some mod podge on the middle of the heart.
glue some fake rhinestones round the pict.
I had just bought some tin roses, with teaky stuff to glue, but i was ugly to see.
So i decided to remove them, see the pict and glue them with some clear glue rond the pict.
Let on the top some place empty.
this is for a paper rose,
choose one rose and paint him with mod podge.
let him dry
Cut of the rose.
Add him on the top with some glue. and let it dry.
I decided that it had more red needed, so with a permanent marker i make with the side of the pen red lines on the shapes.
After that seal evry thing with the nailpolish.
draw with the 3d paint some feathers on both of the wings.
Okay when its dry you have finished one side, Now the other side.;-D
I had some fabric stikkers and i choose this one to stick on the middle of the heart.
add with some glue round the heart some pearl beads.
pay attention how you glue the beads, itsn't a pretty view to look in the holes.;-D
and added a heart shaped bead with glue on the bow.
In this step you must glue with a brush with mod podge the heart.
Let it dry.
After that give the heart some layers with clear nailpolish. So much layers, that you create a smooth and clossy surface.
The wings: with some 3d paint you must draw feathers on both wings.
And let it dry.
I had only this keyholder, and because i didn't like the chain on it, i had to remove it with some pliers.
Let the jumpring open.
On this jump ringchain put the ribbon of the heart in and close the ring.
And now your finsihed, and you have a awesome kistschy flying heart keyholder which is on two sides a beauty.LOL
Have fun with the making proces and with using him.
My Friend has hung him at her bag, she found him to beautifull to use him like a keyholder.
And don't be scared about the many steps, sometimes i have used more picts to show what you must do.
