Make a Lovehearts brooch

Designed for Valentine's Day, but a great gift anytime of year. Shun the stores and make some handmade creations instead...and who can resist a Loveheart...with a crafty message? Ok...any message. Make these as personal as you like and remember making for yourself is just as satisfying as making presents. Happy Crafternooning!

YOU WILL NEED:

Pink/peach felt

Pencil

Sellotape roll

Needle & thread

Brooch back
Embroidery floss and wide eye needle

MAKE IT!

 

STEP 1:

Draw around the roll of sellotape to create two circles and cut them out.

STEP 2:

On one of the circles, draw a heart shape and your message into the felt using the pencil, we've gone over ours in a marker pen so it shows up. It's not always easy drawing an even heart shape so if you want perfection create a template on card to draw around first.

STEP 3:

Thread up the floss and stitch over the heart and letters. You don't need to be a good sewer to do this. Just go over the lines we used a running stitch on the heart with big gaps and closer backstitch on the letters so there are no gaps.

STEP 4

 

On the second circle stitch  a brooch back on the back and then join both circles together with a small stitch using ordinary cotton thread.

VOILA!
