I'm currently in the middle of a year-long challenge to sew one heart every day.  That's a LOT of hearts, and about a month ago I started making these 1 1/2" heart-shaped, wool-felt scissors fobs.  



At the moment they fit nicely into a pint-sized canning jar; but as this challenge goes on, I think I'm going to need a bigger jar!


I've made about 35 of them so far, and I enjoy them so much that I will continue making them for my challenge as long as I don't run out of new ideas!  I am currently working on a dog, a mountain scene, and a house.  Here is a closer look at a few of them:

Button flowers


Sewing machine


Citrus slices


I started working with felt in the Felt Badge Swap (both rounds of it!), so with that experience it was easy to jump into this project.  They are entirely hand-sewn, made with wool felt, embroidery floss, sewing thread, baker's twine, and polyfil.

If you have any suggestions for future fobs, I'd love to hear them!

These are so cute, and very well done. I'd love to see some food themes one, like a fried egg Smiley I commend you for choosing a goal of one a day.

Oh, my, but those are A-Dorable!  Grin The whole collection is very lovely.

Looking for ideas?
Well.... How about a young heart, an old heart, a broken heart, a zombie heart, a stone-heart, an anatomical heart, a sleepy heart, a locked heart, an enchanted fairy tale heart, a lion's heart, an industrial heart, a googly-eye-heart, a superhero's heart, a lost heart, an open-heart-surgery-heart....?

writing "heart" so many times makes me wonder if I misspelled it.. How about a misspelled one, then? Wink

Wow, you're so industrious! I'm impressed. They're all so lovely that I'm not sure I can pick a favorite. I think it would have to be the strawberry, though. Smiley

Good challenge, and what an amazing selection you've come up with! Do you have that many scissors?  Wink The citrus ones are especially interesting, but I love them all.
