Hearts for the Holidays


I made these little ornament sachets inspired by the pillow idea on Page 152 of Colorful Stitchery. I used felted and dyed blanket and sweater remnants. I cut out a bunch of hearts and the let my needle go wild with a different design on each. I stitched with a single strand of Paternayan Persian. I stuffed them with some felted scraps that I put a few drops of lavender oil and then added a few tablespoons of dried lavender. I added a loop so they could be hung on a tree or in a closet. They are little holiday gifts for Julia's teachers.

Those are great and I know that any teacher would love to receive them. It brings back memories of gifts that were given to me when I was teaching. The handmade ones were always the most treasured by me.
