Wool Hearts

I had to go to the dentist yesterday, a big phobia of mine. Just a minor repair to one filling, but I was glad to get out of there! Anyway enough of that unpleasantness.
Valentine's Day is a good excuse to make some heart-themed gifts, and this year I made these stuffed hearts for my two girls.
They are made of wool fabric and filled with dried rose petals to smell nice, plus a bit of ordinary stuffing to round out the shape.
I wondered what I could add to them for decoration, and decided on yo-yos with felt leaves and vintage buttons, with a bit of cotton lace thrown in. They can be hung in a wardrobe on a coat hanger to scent clothes, or on a hook or chest of drawers as an ornament.
