2 - 2 - 15 ..... felting excange

I know, I know,
I was late (again)
But I already phoned Helma,
telling her that the little felted piece "HEARTS" would arrive soon.

When the (postcard size) piece for her was dry
I could start with the embroidery
which  (as I 've said before)
is really fun on felt !!!

Because I chose turquoise/blue for the piece
I thought it was nice to embroider with contrast colours.

The whitish hearts btw are made with cotton batting
under silk chiffon, which works like a resist.

I was in fact too late sending my piece,
I tried to make it up to her and made something extra :

(When the little extra heart was finished with a key ring
I was so eager to send it all off 
that I forgot to make a last picture)

I hope she likes it.

In fact making the heart was so much fun 

that I couldn't resist making a few more
