How to:

Thread your needle and cross stitch the heart, using the chart (third picture from the top). This should take less than five minutes. Next, use the round pin to outline a circle of the same size on the felt. Cut it out and make sure it fits, as you will use this to cover the back of the pin.

Stitch the brooch pin on the felt, towards the upper side, or glue it if you like. Next, glue the felt part to the plastic pin, using strong glue.
