Miniature felted wall hanging - Florence no. 2

This is 'Florence no. 2'.

She is dressed in blue with peach coloured antique silks used to embroider the design. Florence 2 has a beautiful headress made from vintage lace with her hair tumbling down beneath it made from light blue silk French knots. In her hand she holds an embroidered sprig of leaves.
 Florence 2 has been placed on a blue and pink felted heart which was made by the wet felting method. 

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. 9cms x 6.5cms ( 3.5" x 2.6")
The outer white background measures approx.11cms x 9.9cms ( 4.3" x 3.9" )
