Miniature felted wall hanging - Florence no. 4

This is 'Florence no. 4'.

She has a beautiful hat made of vintage pink lace finished with a pink ribbon embroidered with antique pure silk threads. Florence has been placed on a felted heart which was made on the embellisher machine and has additions of pieces of pink silk and more vintage lace with a central French knot.
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. 8cms x 9cms (3.2 " x 3.5")
The outer white background measures approx. 10cms x 11cms ( 3.9" x 4.3"

You can find this miniature wall hanging in my etsy shop
