I made this applique then found the perfect colour and size handbag to put it on.The soft green background made it hard to find just the right item to bring out the pastel colour.
When creating the applique, I wanted to experiment with a suspended pendant pearl and I think it turned out really well. The open section of the heart shape is a perfect place for a pearl!
It needed something to pull it and the bag together so I added a little spray of beaded fringe to the bottom of the heart.
Once the applique was on the bag, I thought it needed a little more to tie it to it’s background, so a few gold and amber crystals were added to the bag to keep the bling going!
