There are such crafty ladies out there, filling blog-land with their wonderful imaginations and delightful crafts! My eyes are just opening!
I first saw a sweet little heart like this on Spencers blog, Bellamere Cottage it was so darn cute that I had to give it a whirl. This is my first foray into felt, and use of beads. With her permission, I'm happy to share with you! It's not as cute as hers of course, but imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
All I could find when I went to the craft store, was crummy old felt. You know the kind for kids projects... 5 for $1.00? Not very good quality, and not many color choices either I'm afraid. I'm really looking forward to doing more of this type of thing, it's more my style than lengthy embroidery projects that might sit around and not get finished. I just need to find better materials.
Spencer says to hang these on a doorknob and they'll make you happy. She's right! Every time I walk past our extra bedroom and see the little heart hanging on the door, I smile to myself.
Thanks again Spencer and thanks to all of you crafty gals out there who continue to inspire me every day, you know who you are!
