A fragrant lavender love heart.
This traditional Toile de Jouy fabric is called 'Vauxhall Gardens' and is by the up-market design house 'Lewis & Wood'.
It features slightly amorous scenes set in a pleasure garden landscape in a soft shade of blue on a light cream ground.
The heart has been edged with a blue mini pom-pom braid and has been finished with a navy blue satin ribbon and antique Victorian blue and gold glass button.
It has been stuffed with lots of fragrant dried lavender and some toy stuffing to provide a plump heart.
I found a few small sample pieces of Lewis and Wood Toile de Jouy fabrics which are just big enough to make into these fragrant love heart tokens.
This pattern, 'Vauxhall Gardens,' is named after the pleasure gardens founded in 1785, near Kennington, on the south bank of the Thames where admission was charged for its attractions. The Gardens drew enormous crowds, with its paths being noted for romantic assignations, so it seems somewhat appropriate to use it to form this love heart! Sadly not much left of the gardens now........
The heart measures approximately 15 cm wide by 14 cm tall (and will be sent to you inside a fully-compostable cellophane bag - inside the parcel - to help maintain its fragrance for as long as possible).
A perfect Christmas Stocking filler!
