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.
