|Felt Julehjerte Valentine|
It is a custom in Denmark and Northern Germany for families to weave paper hearts together to create lovely Christmas ornaments. Although I always think felt when I see a paper project that appeals, I have to admit that I was inspired to try one when I saw Jennifer Ackerman- Haywood's tutorial for creating Julehjerte valentine baskets on her CraftSanity blog. Jennifer's and my hearts are simple; she crafts with her children and perhaps I'm stuck in my felting days as a child. The felt used if from my own sheep, of course. But depending how the hearts are cut the weaving can be quite exquisite when paper is used. Happy Valentine's Day to my blog friends!
