I *heart* ...needle-felted hearts

I wanted to make some hearts for Valentine's day and found inspiration here.  I don't have the mold so I just made mine without.  They're fun to make, although I suggest keeping the words short - needle felting words that tiny takes a bit of patience ( I decided to change my O to a U and leave off the E in LOVE so you can tell how limited my patience is). ;-)
And while I love the needle-felted hearts my boys (all three of them) love...
a more edible kind of heart, especially when served with warmed peach butter.  I find it to be true that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. ;-)  Do you?

Such a pretty way to celebrate. I love the needle felt hearts. I plan on learning how to needle felt, I just need to find a good book. Any ideas?

Hi Imene, the only needle felting book we own is Wool Pets but we've had lots of good ones from our library. We liked Little Felted Animals too.
