Another beautiful felted wall hanging - Florence no. 5

This is 'Florence no. 5'.

She has a dress of beautiful vintage lace  which has a collar of antique lace. She also wears a hat made from a lace flower. Her hair is now a beautiful shiny pink made from antique pure silk embroidery thread, embroidered in French knots. 

 Florence has been placed on a felted heart which was made on the embellisher machine using merino wool fibres in shades of pink and antique silk fabric in greens and white. The heart also has the addition of antique hat felt at the top of the heart.

The white background on which Florence is mounted has been made using white merino wool fibres which have been wet felted.

The reverse side has the addition of double sided bondaweb to adhere the felt to the pretty vintage French fabric. This makes the felt stronger and ideal for hanging.

A vintage brass ring has been sewn at the top for hanging on the wall. However if you prefer to frame it, this ring can easily be removed.

The heart measures approx. 10.5cms x 7.5cms  ( 4.1" x 2.8")
The outer white background measures approx.13cms x 9cms ( 5.1" x 3.5" )

Why not have a look at the other miniature wall hangings in the 'Florence' collection. you can buy them on my etsy shop


An ideal gift for Valentines Day or Mothering Sunday or to add to your collection.
