New Holiday "Heart Felt" Ornaments

I've just made a new batch of "Heart Felt" hearts!

I've been getting reading for the first holiday shoppers in my Etsy shop, Felt Sew Good. I'm not an early shopper myself, but some of you may want to get a head start. These are the latest version of my "Heart Felt" embroidered hearts. I love these little hearts, and they are fun to make. These cute puffed heart ornaments were made from felted recycled wool sweaters. They are embroidered in traditional Christmas colors of red, gold, dark green, light green and cream and each is accented with a tiny vintage button. They are blanket stitched around the edge and "puffed" with a little stuffing. Each heart has a tiny red satin ribbon loop for hanging. The back of each ornament is unadorned. They would be lovely hanging on your Christmas tree, or spreading holiday cheer anywhere in your home. Or use one as a sweet accent tied to that very special holiday gift!
