Scrappy Heart Pins for St. Valentine's Day

Earlier this week, I cleaned out my pink scraps of the smallest bits, made the string pieced fabric that I shared when it was on my design wall, cut it up and made these.



Each of the twelve hearts has a few pale pink lazy daisies embroidered on the front and a pin back sewn to the back. 



The hearts are small, each about 3 by 4-inches. Small enough to hold in your hand, pin onto a collar or bag or use as a small pincushion.



I pinned them onto Thank You notes and sent them on their way in the post a few days ago.   I keep thinking about making these 5 or 6 times larger and using them for pillows. 


If you would like to make your Valentine a little heart pinnie, here's how they are made.

This will be my update for Scrap Happy Saturday.  I'm also joining the lists for Finish It Up Friday, Richard and Tanya's Link a  Finish Friday  and Whoop Whoop Friday.

Dear Sophie,
I am one of the lucky recipients of you heart pins. It arrived today, St. Valentine's Day. Currently it resides on the table in my entryway, along with a Valentine picture. After that, it will probably reside on my bright pink spring jacket. Thank you so much for the thought, Kathie L in Allentown

What a great little heart pin. I'll have to make a few and tuck away for teacher gifts next year.

What a great idea; I love them. I've copied your instructions, and I'll certainly be making pincushions based on these. Thank you.

Sarah said...

So cute what a lovely idea!

Cathy said...

Oh, how sweet. Thank you. The granddaughters were here when it arrived today and they both wanted to steal it from me. I can see I'll probably have to make some stocking stuffers. Wouldn't a bowl of them be so cute?

Thanks again.

Karen said...

What adorable hearts. Thanks for sharing. I am sure the people who received the hearts loved them.

Bridget said...

I haven't been blog looking for a few days, but just wanted to say how cute these little hearts are!

They'd also be cute strung as a garland, but the pin idea is even better since it is portable.
