My first attempt at a Sailor's Valentine.....

My first Sailor's Valentine.....and I am pleased with the results.
I wish I knew more stitches....will have to work on that:D
I left room on the back to stitch on the recipients name.
I learned that using upcycled wool is a good way to go......
it is forgiving when you turn it
it is easy to stitch into:)

If you try your hand at this please send me a picture and I will post!

So pretty, Linda! I may have to try my hand at one of these.
