Valentine Felt Pins


I made a bunch of these little heart pins to give out to friends and family for Valentine's day.  It took me about 1.5 hours to whip up 8 of these.

Supplies:
Felt
Embroidery floss
Pinking sheers
Pins
Pillow stuffing





I used my heart cookie cutter and some cardboard from the recycling bin to make my pattern.




I simply traced the heart on to the felt with a vanishing marker and cut them out using my pinking sheers.  Two felt hearts per pin are needed.





Around the edge, I did a simple running stitch.


When I got almost done, I stuffed with pillow filling.





On the back, I stitched a little gold pin.

And that's it!


So I made a few...


Then a few more....




 Then...well, I couldn't stop...




I made these little cards...

And the girls put these together for their teachers.

  4. Your little heart pins are the greatest, good job. So cute and what a nice little gift for the ladies or even some of the guys. I think a project that's cheap and quick is very appreciated. I just might have to make some. The ladies at the thrift store in next town to us sure deserve a little something for their efforts. Guess I'd better get busy huh?

  5. These are the most cutest things! Where did you find that polka-dot felt? I need some of that. I've pinned this for next V-Day so that my daughter and I can make some and hand them out next year!
