Scandinavian inspired Felt Heart

Hi everyone.

I have been feeling so inspired by all things Scandinavian just recently.  I have treated myself to a couple of books, found some lovely blogs and just generally mooched about the internet getting ideas.  And I found that although I had thought that red and white were the main colour ways for that Scandi-look, in fact this is usually only the case for Christmassy things.  In fact, our friends over in Scandinavian usually go for lovely, light colours, icy blues, steely greys, snowy whites, etc.  And, although I usually go for those rich, warm, autumnal colours, I found that I like this icy-palette quite a lot.

So, feeling quite inspired I had a rumage around in my craft box and found some scraps of felt, wool, ribbon and buttons and started to play around.  This is what I ended up with...


I think Im going to replace the chinese lanterns with some white branches, would be a bit more in keeping with the colours dont you think?

Here is my new heart with one of the cross stitch hearts I made during the holidays, I think they go quite well together:

I have bought some steely grey wool felt to make some more hearts, will let you know how I get on!



  1. I love the Scandi look, usually the red and white - but I really love this icy palette too! Your heart is gorgeous, really impressed!

    Hugs, Estelle xx

  9. Isn't fun to shop around for inspiration, Helen? I have not tried to do much with felt, but I really like the look of what you have created. I aim to make some crocheted hearts
