Florence no. 3 . A miniature felted wall hanging.

 This is 'Florence no. 3'.

She has tranformed her body into a pretty pink balloon shap which is emphasised with machine stitching. Her hair, which is made from silk twist threads is in bunches with a cute fringe.
Florence 3 has been placed on a felted heart which was made on the embellisher machine using merino wool fibres in shades of lilac, blue and pink. It then had an addition of hand embroidery in the form of lilac coloured French knots.

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.
 The heart measures approx. 6.3cms x 8.5cms  ( 2.5" x 3.3")
The outer white background measures approx.10.5cms x 8.5cms ( 3.9" x 3.3" )
