I've decided that resistance is futile. I love making these hearts. It really can't be denied. Every evening I make another. You may wonder why I need so many? Well, in March I'm exhibiting at the NEC in Birmingham and I intend to have a bunting of felt hearts. So I have a reason. Well, that's the one that I'm using and I'm sticking to it.
Here's the latest:
If you want to see the hearts on display then please come and find the stand.
Amethyst Necklace with a twist. A spiral rope necklace in fact.
I have some beautiful large silverlined glass beads. They are lentil shaped which means that they are discs with a dome shape in the middle. I also have the Silver Colour Scarf Tube Pendant x 2, which I used to hang the pendant.
Now, I'm not pretending that this was quick to make as it was not. The rope will take a couple of evenings but, when that's done, the rest is a breeze and the effect is stunning.
If you are interested I can make up a kit for you at the cost of £10. This will include everything except the fireline and needle.
Lately I've been working with ribbons to make a set of stunning ribbon roses. Suddemly I realised that I didn't have the really wide chiffon ribbon in stock and I just had to get it in and quickly. So, today my parlcle arrived and I've abandoned my sewing in favour of putting the ribbons on the web site. I know that you'll love them too.
I'll start off with the 40mm chiffons in 25 Metre Reels. I've done this so that you can get cheaper prices.
Now you'll have to come back tomorrow to see what I've done with these ribbons.
I,m working my way through a rainbow of felt colours as I want to make a felt heart bunting to hang on my stand at the NEC in March this year. I realised that I hadn't made any hearts from the cerise felt so I put that right this morning and came up with this design.
It's a kit too so, if you want one, you can get it from Craft Fairy. Just click on 'kits'.
My banner is coming on a pace. It measures 2 metres when the hearts are touching. All I need to do is make sure that it will be about 7 metres long. If I leave a space between each heart I think that I may be about there. I'll get a long piece of 16mm grosgrain out and give it a try.
Hubby wonders how we are going to attach it to the stand. I have the solution:
Self adhesive velcro.
The hearts are really light so they won't put much pull on the bunting and the velcro. That's my idea and I'm going with it. Fingers crossed.
