Some hearts for Mirabel


Well I finally got around to making and posting off my hearts to Meet Me at Mikes for their Mirabel Foundation fundraiser. I know most people are making softie type hanging hearts (One Red Robin has a really cute tutorial here), but I haven't made many softies, and was a bit worried I might make something that was 'not quite up to scratch' you know, so I went with these.


I made something similar for Christmas, and liked it so much we still have it hanging in the kitchen, so I thought I would make a valentine-themed mobile in the same vein. I think they would look nice hanging at the edge of a kitchen window. They catch the breeze and swirl so nicely - and who can resist a tinkling bell! I hope they will make someone else's heart dance and twirl!

You can check out what other people have made for this appeal at the I heart Mirabel Flickr group. All the hearts will be displayed in the window of the Meet me at Mikes store - and then will be sold on Saturday 8th March for $10 each! All funds go to the Mirabel Foundation.
