Hearts and Doves

I organised a little workshop last week for my Viva a Vida friends; something simple we could make in a couple of hours, so there was still time to chat and have lunch. We made padded hearts with pretty red ribbons. Then I made a few more when I got home, adding little bells which I had been saving from chocolate wrappers.

We also made some little pink doves. These are my version in gold and turquoise, which proved rather tricky to photograph hanging up as they kept spinning around! I embroidered eyes with lurex thread and used the same thread to make a little hanger. You will find the pattern for the little birds here.



  1. Lovely hearts and birds Ros. How about taking a couple of twigs and pinning the birds to them?

  2. Hi Rosa, I will be posting out your Christmas parcel next monday! I have been so busy in my little online felt shop that I have not had time to put the things I have made together for you! Will post a note to let you know when it is on its way. xx

  3. Very nice! Maybe a nest of tangled, narrow strips of tissue paper for the doves to sit in?

  4. I love your decorations - the hearts especially.

  6. Love love birds!
    I like the little birds and the hearts too.
    Sorry I couldn't make it that session - still it was lovely to see all the good friends!
    Love, Lety xx
