This was the final project for my class at The Settlement this term. Small stuffed felt hearts for hanging on the Christmas tree... on anywhere else for that matter, adapted from a pattern by Jill Kennedy in Stitch magazine
Margaret made these gorgeous extra large blue versions above and Jan made all four of these below. Restraint was not the order of the day and they were all resplendent with metallic threads, beads, sequins and tassels.
These two below were made by Di... look at that gorgeous beaded parrot!
Clockwise, from top left, these were made by Ann, Elaine and Jenny. Although Elaine is an experienced machinist she is fairly new to machine embroidery so she was quite rightly delighted with her frosty blue heart... so pretty!
Debbie made Christmas trees as well as a heart.
Anne, another beginner, finished her fabulous green heart in class yesterday, complete with fancy tassel.
Barbara's is still a work in progress but she had missed a week when she was poorly.
And Ann was making another three to add to the one pictured above.
As always, the same set of instructions, but so many different beautiful interpretations. It has been a pleasure to teach this group this term and I'm already devising new things for January!
