Looking for Valentine craft projects? This felt heart brooch project is simple to make, and just so cute!

Materials

To make these felt heart brooches, you will need:

  • heart-shaped template
  • coloured felt
  • scissors
  • pencil
  • embroidery floss and needle
  • brooch backing
  • soft-toy filling

Instructions

To make your felt heart brooch, the first step is to draw a heart-shape onto some plain paper and cut it out. Trace around this template onto your coloured felt twice.

I've used red felt here, but don't hold back - you can use any colour and your brooch will look great!

Now, cut out two heart-shaped pieces of felt.

To embroider a word or name onto the front of your heart, you can use a pencil firstly to trace out the word you'd like to use. Then embroider it on using your embroidery floss.

Skip this step if you prefer to make a plain heart brooch.

On to your other piece of felt, you'll now need to secure the brooch backing. Sew it on firmly so that it won't come loose!

Now its time to sew your two heart-shapes together. Use blanket stitch and sew around most of the heart, leaving a small gap so you can stuff your brooch with a little filling in the next step.

Using a small amount of wadding, fill your heart-shaped brooch with stuffing. Don't overfill, you just want a heart that is a bit soft and squishy :-)
