Two years ago I made a gift to my beloved — a woollen heart. Now I want to share the recipe with you.
Materials and tools:
- 20-30 g of white carded wool
- a little red and pink wool, fine or Merino, combed wool tape
- needles for felting
- a base for felting: sponge or mat
Cut out a template:
Start felting white carded wool:
Add wool if necessary — the heart should be of equal density:
The finished heart should be hard, uniformly dense, with a smooth surface. One side can be convex (front), the second (reverse) — flat.
Start decorating the heart.
Apply the pattern:
Roll balls and make flowers and berries:
I decided to add pink details:
But keep in mind: if the heart is overloaded with elements, the excess is hardly removed.
The finished heart can be attached to a brooch base or a magnet. You can attach a ribbon or glue it to a card. You can sprinkle the inside with some perfume and, thus, turn it into a magical gift.
All the best,
