Instead of giving a pebble found on the beach as a token of love for valentines day how about giving a Needle Felt Pebble Heart to the one you love.
Take a nice sized lump of roving wool in a natural pebble colour ( I like earth browns and greys). Roll the wool up into the kind of shape you want your pebble to be and then start binding the fibres together and shape the felt using your felting needle until the wool has compacted down in to a tight pebble shape.
Next take a small piece of red roving wool and use a fine felting needle to attach the bottom ‘v’ of the heart and the top ‘cleavage’ part of the heart. Once those areas are secure start shaping one side of the heart and then the other. You should not be able to pull any of the felt off when it’s finished
The felt pebble makes a gorgeous Love Token just as it is but you could also needle felt a date into the back.
You could even make a set of three different sized pebbles.
