Place the ferret and the letters on the heart. You can move them around to decide where to place them. Pin the ferret and the letters to heart. Using a zigzag stitch, sew them in place. You can use a small amount of glue to hold the pieces in place before sewing them. (Click image to enlarge.)

Draw six or seven full daisies on white felt and a couple of smaller half-daisies. Cut these out. Cut lots of leaves in two or three different shades of green. Cut out small pink hearts for the center of the daisies. Arrange the flowers and leaves along the opposite side of the heart from the ferrets. Glue or pin down. (Click image to enlarge.)
