Anatomically Correct Locket

This is the last of the fabric charms for a while—I'm moving on to embroidered cockroaches.


Materials for the locket include a vintage image printed onto iron-on transfer paper, recycled fabric, cord, and cotton stuffing.  All parts of the heart are labled in teensy, tinsy print. What's hidden inside the locket? Only those willing to tear the thing to bits will ever find out.
