What You Need
- Printable felt heart medal template (download here)
- Printable Valentine’s Day card (download here)
- Brooch pin
- Embroidery thread
Download the medal template and cut out the shapes. Trace the heart and circle onto the felt and cut them out.
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.
Embroider a simple face using tiny straight stitches or cross stitches for eyes and nose. Use a fly stitch for the smiling mouth.
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.
Now stitch your smiling felt medal onto the bottom of the heart brooch.
Download and print the Valentine’s Day medal card onto sturdy paper. Cut it out, punch the two holes, and pin the felt medal through the holes.
Fill in the blank with your loved one, add a cute envelope, and share your love!
Happy Valentine’s Day! ♥
