Girls just want to have fun

I needed a quick and easy something to do yesterday and I made this heart.
It has had a bath in tea as well, even if it does not show well in the photo.
I had so much tea from the other stitchery dying, and a gene of frugality kicked in, so I saved it in a soda bottle in the fridge.
I re-heated about 5 dl in a mug in the microwave, to hot but not boiling, put the stitchery in and left it in for 20 minutes.
Rinsed in luke warm water and dried. It now has a soft beige tone, like unbleached plus.
I have plans for what to make with this heart - stay tuned :-)

What size is this heart? A matching checkbook cover? A coin purse? Just what wonderful thing will you surprise us with.
