Needle Felted Hearts

Felt a touchable, squeezable heart for someone you love this Valentine’s Day. The heart is created by plunging a special needle into Merino wool set inside a heart cookie cutter, which tangles it into a solid shape. Wool is beautiful, colorful, organic, and magic is in its power as a shape-shifter.

If you can’t attend the program, you can find the instructions for your own Needle Felted Hearts here!
