Felted wall hanging, no. 8 from the Florence collection.

You can see the 'Florence collection' on my etsy site -  

This is an original felted miniature wall hanging of a lady who is able to transform herself, clothing and surroundings depending on how I see the felt developing after working. There will be 9 wall hangings in the 'Florence' collection.
This is 'Florence no. 8'.

She has a pretty vintage lace dress pink silk ribbon arms, plaited vintage embroidery thread hair and an embroidered hat.
Florence has been placed on a felted heart which was made by the wet felting method in shades of white, lilac and turquoise merino wool fibres with a silk addition.
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 3") with the addition of a 3.5cms/1.4" tail.
The outer white background measures approx.16.5cms x 9cms ( 6.5" x 3.5" )

Why not have a look at the other miniature wall hangings in the 'Florence' collection.
