Step 2
Choose an embroi­dery thread that is a darker shade than the color of your cir­cle felt piece; this way stitches will look like an embossed design. Blan­ket stitch around the circle.

Step 3
Embroi­der a sim­ple face using tiny straight stitches or cross stitches for eyes and nose. Use a fly stitch for the smil­ing mouth.

Step 4
Care­fully sew the brooch pin onto the back of your felt heart. Avoid going all the way through the felt; stitch just below the sur­face so that the stitches don’t show on the right side of the heart piece. Thicker felt will make this easier.
