I made these right after I saw this post about felt heart pins on the Purl Bee but was waiting to get a little closer to Valentines Day to post about them . I like the Purl Bee ones but I thought they'd look cute if they looked like conversation hearts. I don't even really wear pins but I needed to make these (needed to) so I made one for each of Emily's teachers, one for my sister who is a teacher and one for Emily although I'm not sure she'd wear it. I used the template from the purl bee project and machine sewed them together instead of hand stitching them. I also used two different embroidery stitches to see which I liked better (or which one I'm better at) and it turns out the AWESOME one is the best embroidery-wise. It's very hard for me to make perfect letters and this stitch helped (back stitch?). I printed out different sized conversation heart words and matched up the sized that worked the best on this size heart. I then used a iron transfer pen to get the wording on to the felt.
Below is my favorite part. I made a little card for the pins to be pinned to so they'll be purty when I give them to the teachers.
