Heart Patches

I mentioned yesterday about getting my craft on, another little project I completed was adding felt patches onto a jumper.  I originally saw this on Pinterest where they had used the needle felting technique to add heart shaped patches onto the elbow of a jumper.   You can find the link to the original source here.

I loved it as soon as I saw it and seeing as I had a stash of merino wool in my craft cupboard thought I'd give it a go. 

It was surprisingly easy as it goes.

 The most difficult thing about it was lining up the elbows, I struggled a bit with this so they are a little wonky. If I had of followed the instructions properly it probably wouldn't have been so difficult, but I'm not one for following directions for craft projects.

Another little crafty project to cross off the list :)  I'm getting good at this.

Love Gem x x x x
