Lots of love!

Well folks, here we are in February! Already. I started pottering last week, to make a valentine's hairband for my girly. I love making things for her, she LOVES everything! She is always just bubbling over with so much enthusiasm for life. I love it when this tips over into  all of her mama made belongings. I love hearing her proudly telling everyone that her mummy made it for her.

Ok, complete tangent there! Where was I? Oh yeah, valentine's day. I started pottering with some felt and made a sweet little heart for K to wear in her hair. This simple little heart made me smile so much that I decided to keep going. I spent a few lovely relaxing nights watching tv and playing with some felt and button and all sorts of valentine coloured fun! It was nice to be able to sit with the boys and craft away rather than hiding away in my crafty zone with the sewing machine whirring away.

The end result was a wee variety of hearts that can be added to hairbands, clips , brooches or even keyrings! First up - some hairbands

A beautiful glittery pink band with my hand stitched felt heart embellishment.

I also added one to a plain pink band. Simple and pretty.

Each heart is a unique combination of buttons and ribbon roses.

I also attached one to a an alligator clip  and it would be so sweet pulling a little hair back or even nestled in to the side of a ponytal or other "up do!"

I haven't attached them all yet as I wasn't sure which would be most popular so I thought I would just share pics of the hearts and the buyers could choose and then tell me how they would like to wear it and I would go forth and oblige!

The hearts measure approx 2 1/2" x 3" and there is one slightly bigger heart that is 3" x 3 1/4"

The prices are as follows
Hairband - £3.50
Brooch pin - £3.00
Clippy - £3.00
Keyring - 3.00

My girly is off to school wearing hers today, she chose a pink glittery hairband for , I must remember to take a pic of her when she gets home fron school :-) , we even have sunshine here today so it will be fun and probably a little wiggly.

I am off to list the finished ones in my folksy shop , if you would like to order one of the hearts, drop me an email (email addy next to my profile at the top right of the page) or leave me a comment to let me know which one is your favourite and how you would like it!
