|Felted heart key rings|
So this is the Pickle-Lily beginners - teach-it-yourself guide to felting hearts! I can not say if this is the correct way to do this, as I have been teaching myself, but I am very pleased with the end result!
Place the mold on top of a normal piece of paper on the brush.
Fill the mold with short sections of fluffed out merino tops.
Punch the tops using the pen through the paper.
This is what the reverse of the paper will look like.
Carefully remove the heart, turn it over and repeat the process on the other side, still placing the paper between the brush and the heart.
The finished hearts.
I then attached them to some normal wool mix felt to make the key rings ready for Valentines Day or Mothering Sunday.
I'm now off to order a book from the library to see if I'm doing it right!
