Sweet Little Felted Hearts

Friday, June 28th, 2013

A truly “zen” way to while away an evening. My daughter and I had lots of fun creating these cute little needle felted hearts. Izzy wanted to make these as a little token of appreciation for her teacher.

All you need to get started is felting wool, felting needles and a soft surface to rest your project on. You can buy special foam felting blocks but we used a couple of folded towels and they worked just fine. This is the video we watched prior to getting started. Cookie cutters really work well to help guide the beginner.

It might be fun to do some little stars for July 4th, I think a few of them would look so cute in a little wooden bowl as a centerpiece. Or for my fellow Canadian friends some little maple leafs to celebrate Canada Day on July 1st. Happy celebrating!
