Valentine's Day felt heart

Happy Valentine's Day!

I made this little felt heart the other day. I love crafting with felt (you can see some of my favourite felt crafts in my felt craft project round up) but have found that my felt projects don't take very long as they sew up very quickly and then I don't know what to do with them, so I added plenty of embroidery to my heart to slow down the process a bit!

I still don't know what to do with it though! For the time being it's hanging up in kitchen as a little Valentine's Day decoration, but Harry has taken a fancy to it so I'm expecting it to be spirited away!

Valentine's Day felt embroidered heart

The ribbon at the top with hearts on it was an afterthought when I saw it on the table. I received a new pack of felt for Christmas, and the ribbon had been used to tie it. It is red with little white hearts on it, very appropriate.

I've recently been buying (or rather, having it bought for me as gifts) my felt from Paper and String and they are a lovely company which I can fully recommend if you are looking to buy felt, they have a lovely selection of colours. No affiliation, just a happy customer!

    Actually I was making a felt owl the day before so maybe that's why it looks like one!
