Waste Not ..

Hello my dear friends,

like many of you creators out there I too love to hang on to almost any and every small scrap of  something for the reasons of  'just in case' and 'you never know' and 'I might be able to use it'.

This little creation is one of those cases. If you recall I made the lovely felted crown designed by Donna Goss and just like the other crown makers I too had leftover pieces of the most lovely felt and I too, just like others, turned some of my little leftovers of felt into a lovely heart ... well, to be exact a small felted heart pincushion.


It didn't take a lot of time or supplies to make this little treasure. Half an hour time and a little scrap of felt and a piece of doilie here and some treasures there. It is so neat what can be created from very little and things you might have on hand ~ you just have to put a little thought into it and off you go creating something lovely!
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.


  1. That is oh so sweet. I love everything about it.


  2. I just love how your sweet eyes and hands move together to make such beautiful works of art. Keep listening to your inner self!!

  3. It's so pretty Karen, and hard to believe it didn't take much time! I love the idea that it can be made from leftovers too; beautiful, and thrifty.

  4. Lovely little felted heart. Using every bit and snippet is a fun challenge. Blissful...

  5. Your felted heart is beautiful...I love the color. Such a lovely use of a scrap!

  6. What a sweet little heart.. love it. It would have been a real shame to have tossed out the leftover felt when something this charming can be made from it.

  7. Your site is literalky a feast to the eyes... All this from scrap? Unbelievable. :)
