Circle of Hearts Brooch/Pin

I made this cute pin the other day for my coat to welcome February in all its heart filled glory.  I used my pattern for "One Round Hearts" and used some pretty buttons I had on hand:

Here's what you'll need to make you own brooch/pin:
  • 5 hearts (hearts shown were made with worsted weight yarn and an H hook)
  • Buttons of your choice
  • Hot glue or fabri-tac (found in any craft or fabric store)
  • Scrap of fabric, felt, or fleece
  • Scissors

Start by crocheting 5 hearts...I made mine with worsted weight yarn (Cascade 220) and an H hook.  I experimented with some heavier/thicker yarn and it made the brooch way too big.

Then, cut a circle with your scrap (I used leftovers from this project).  It won't show so it's not terribly important that it is not the same color.  Before gluing everything  arrange the hearts to test everything first and make sure the circle is the right may have to trim it a bit.

With a glue gun or fabri-tac, glue the hearts in a circle onto the fabric.  There will be a hole in the middle, so a button is in order....

I stacked a few because I liked the way these looked together.  It took a little bit of fiddling, but I eventually got the combination I liked best.

When you're finished, you can glue a pin backing onto the back of your creation.

Just to give you an idea of size, here's how it looks in my hand...

And on my coat...loving this sweet little pin!

    1. Thanks, I had a blast making it and picking out the buttons was super fun too...I love instant gratification projects!

  2. I am thinking about hearts just now --- and yours are pretty perfect. I think I will make a few and pop them in my pocket for a little bit of comfort next week. Pocket hearts!

    1. What a heartwarming idea! No pun intended :) Last year I surprised my family by sticking them in lunches.
