Knitted newspaper heart - wedding/valentine

Knitted newspaper heart - wedding/valentine
Love this


Why not give something unique - a knitted recycled newspaper heart with words taken from the newspaper strung by golden thread to the main piece. Framed in a natural wood box frame (6'' square internally)

**The item pictured is available with the words "magic" and "incredible" taken from a newspaper).**

The newspapers are full of bad news- by handspinning these bad news stories into yarn and creating keepsakes, wall art and cards to express love, best wishes, birthday wishes, good luck etc. Bad news is spun into good... old stories are spun into new stories.

If you would like your gift to be extra special, newspaper from the day the couple are married can be used. (This will cost an extra £5). I can send a photo of this item with a little note explaining how their gift will be made, for the couple to open on the wedding day. The final framed piece can then be shipped a week or so after the wedding date.

Back dated newspapers (for anniversaries etc) can be used, but will cost more as purchase of back issues can be difficult/expensive depending on the date
