we {heart} felt hearts | the twinery

I admit it, I love any excuse to put on my thinking cap and create a project. While I had my Maraschino baker's twine and red felt out the other day creating this project, I thought to myself, "What else can I do with all the supplies I already have out?"

Well, I'm here today to show you what some felt scraps, a little baker's twine and some patterned paper scraps will reward you with. I made this heart pin for my Mom, but I'm thinking that I should have made one for myself as well!


I began with my two felt hearts and stuffed it with a small bit of a cotton ball because I didn't have any polyfill. After using my craft glue to adhere the two layers together, and becoming impatient with the dry time, I resorted to stitching the heart shapes together with my sewing machine. Probably the best choice, really. The baker's twine is adhered with Glossy Accents atop the line of machine stitching.

After adding a pin closure to the back of the felt heart, I attached it to the patterned paper insert I made for my hinged tin and added a bit more twine {Maraschino and Lemondrop} to add a fun touch.
