Wet felting is great fun and you can create the most beautiful things, but I find all the rubbing really hard on my hands (what a wimp!) so I don't play around with it very often. I have, however, come to the conclusion that felt is the most wonderful fabric on the planet - it is versatile, so easy to sew with and, best of all, it doesn't fray! Simple sheets of machine made felt have made a great backing fabric for these hearts.
In a perfect world I'd be backing these with beautiful Harris Tweed, but I looked at the cost and it would mean a fair an investment on my part and a higher retail price to pass on to my customers.
I've made a few hanging hearts with three dimensional, fluffy animals.
