This was inspired by the fact that kids grow out of clothes so fast, and while I was going to make a shirt or dress with a heart applique, instead I decided to make this pin (and a few others) so they could be used for a longer time. This looks adorable pinned on a dress or jacket, and would even work pinned to a hair elastic for a cute hair accessory.
You just need:
- felt – old felted sweaters work well for this, or even store bought felt. (Thicker felt will be less ‘floppy’, so use that for the bottom piece, if you can.
- A pretty button
- embroidery thread/needle
- safety pin
Older kids can make these themselves, too!
These are fun and easy, and offer a ton of possibilities.. Check out these that Joanne at Ready, Set, Craft made last year
