I don't take crafts on the boat as I find I have always forgotten something and also I am far too messy.
On our return we had a visit from our German Friends Heidi and Uwe. We have know them for 22 years and although we don't meet often enough, Heidi and I have always had a craft connection. This time was no exception and sharing ideas is always good. Our men just raise their eyebrows and leave us to it. Possibly knowing we will be off to the shops in the near future for kit that has been recommended.Heidi had lots of ideas one of which was a heart shaped bride and groom. I couldn't wait to have a go and below is the result.
On the groom (black) one is a slit 1cm into the centre then folded back to form a collar and stuck on a white heart shape onto which I have formed a 'tie' which is a knotted piece of ribbon. 3 pearl buttons and a silver 'pocket' finish it off.
The bride is formed with a smaller embossed shape on top.
