Heart Pins

I've been so busy sewing... filling orders for reusable lunch sets!
I also had to finish very belated birthday presents and valentine goodies.
Purl Bee inspired  http://www.purlbee.com/valentine-heart-pins/
At the last minute I decided to make these sweet, and totally easy Valentine Heart pins. I thought these pins were the perfect and simple way to send our favorite teachers home for the weekend.

Using pinking shears I cut two hearts out of my favorite felt. 
With embroidery thread, heart shaped buttons and smaller heart shaped felt pieces, I embellish each pin before sewing them together.



I used a running stitch or a zig-zag stitch in the dips of the pinked edges to close the two hearts together.
Before completely closing the hearts I used a small amount of fill to give them a pillow effect.


I finished each heart by attaching a small safety pin to the back.
These are so EASY and FUN to make!
BE CAREFUL!
You won't want to stop once you start!

Since this was a last minute idea I didn't have a way for the girls to hand them to their teachers, so
I quickly trimmed some thick scrap booking paper to fit into the printer and made these sweet little note cards. 
After attaching the pins to their note cards I ran out the door for delivery.
