Felted Doll Pocket Brooch

It is bitterly cold in my part of the world. It makes you want to wear layers and layers. So today in the comfort of my warm studio, I finished this little heart brooch.

I happily felted the heart using some of the red and pink wool roving in my stash.

Then I pulled out this tiny one inch bisque doll. With no arms or legs, I can't think of a better embellishment to wrap in a layer of soft felt.

Then the hand sewing began. I added the pin and all the tiny gold coloured leaves. She is my Canadian Winter Valentine!
