Wear Your Heart on Your Lapel

Wednesday, February 13, 2008

I reworked some felt heart pins/brooches that I found in my closet - they were a lot of fun to embellish - here's a picture of three together - the close-ups can be found at my flickr site -




The hearts were knit with wool using a pattern from Nicky Epstein's book "Knitted Embellishments", then felted.

The one on the left I actually didn't change much - there is lots of top-stitching done in YLI's Kaleidoscope gold thread & an embellishment from India - I once bought a ton of these for my dragons and still have lots to work with.

The one in the center bottom had the most dramatic change - I had stamped a face onto the left side, an eye was embroidered and there was a cluster of beads on the right. I had fun learning how to crochet the flowers and beading around them.

The one on the right - I just added some beads around where the yarn embellishment was, it came out very pretty.

Where can you find them?

  • A Break In Time Co-op & Gallery @ 81 Hanover Street, Manchester, NH 603-647-8118

And on the back, a little self-promotion - I'm so happy about these labels, I want to put them on everything:
