My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

28 May 2013

Hanging Hearts

Evening crafters, hope you have all had a great day.

It has been non-stop rain all day so I took the girls shopping at Touchwood, Solihull and treated myself to a few things too! As you do LOL.

So I am here with something a little different tonight.  I have got totally hooked on sewing with felt and here are some of the heart decorations I have made so far!

The two above look a little dodgy, but the two below are much better as I am improving with each one.


Spellbinders Heart & Scalloped Heart Nesties
Ribbon & Buttons from Stash
Love & Flower Dies

I would like to enter these into the following challenges:

Crafty Ribbons 46 Anything Goes With Ribbon
Crafts 4 Eternity 125 Get Into Shape (No Squares)
That Craft Place Dies & Punches
Anything But A Card 20 Dust Off Your Old Supplies
Craft Your Passion 164 Natural Materials

I would love to have your honest opinion on these please in case I am just wasting my time mass producing LOL.

I will be back tomorrow to show you the owl I have just finished making!

Thanks for stopping by - all feedback greatly welcomed!
