More Hearts for UNICEF

Hello....... I've been making a few more hearts for UNICEF
(you can read more about this fund raising project 'here'  )

This one turned out to be my favourite so far, with felt flowers, sparkles and a cute button

To the back I added some flower gems.

Next up I raided my Christmas card stash for this pretty wooden Christmas tree with silver sparkles, it was tricky but I manage to stitch the tree in place, before sewing on some sequins and beads

For the back I stitched on some purple flower sequins and added ice blue gem centres.

Here's they all are hanging on my winter tree lights

I then attempted to make a crochet heart, using Bunny Mummy's 
sunburst heart pattern, which turned out a little on the large side for the UNICEF project, so I think it's going to be a one off, I added a pretty ribbon and painted the back with PVA.

Last week a friend and I made it to one of the heart workshops running in the town, just for a hour, but it was lovely to go along

Where I made this little button heart

Some wonderful hearts were created by everyone that day,

and I was thrilled to bits when a friends spotted some of my hearts for sale on Saturday in Tamarisk, which is a lovely clothes boutique in the town. So wonderful to see everyone's hard work, spreading some love and raising some money.

Why don't you get town on the case too and do some crafty fund raising for UNICEF.

Happy Crafting
