Lutradur Valentine Fabric Hearts
I've discovered the wonders of Lutradur (CS500). Lutradur is a fantastic material to work with and It's extremely versatile. It is a non-woven polyester fabric similar to interfacing and comes in a variety of different weights. It can be coloured and heat gunned to create amazing textures. These three bespoke Valentine hearts have 2 fabric layers on their surface and comprise of Lutradur and a deep red silk effect fabric. The black lace-like and delicate spun fabric allows the red silk effect fabric to show through. The front of the hearts are embellished with intricate free machine embroidery (a process that I enjoy immensely) in scarlet rayon embroidery thread which reads 'My Valentine', 'I Love You' and 'Hot Stuff'.
