How to make a cute DIY felt heart brooch
First draw and cut two heart shapes out of the pink felt.
Pierce the brads through one heart shape and secure them by bending the prongs back like a paper fastener. Sew a smile using black thread and a simple running stitch.
Sew the brooch bar on to the other heart shape until secure.
Place the two heart shapes together with the brooch bar on the back and the face facing the front and sew the edges with matching pink thread and a running stitch, leaving a gap to fill with toy stuffing.
Fill the heart with toy stuffing until plump then continue to sew round and tie a knot to finish.
This cute heart felt brooch would make an ideal gift.
