Barrettes for Valentine's Day

Did you see Miss Pickles wearing a fabulous birdie hairpin with heart wings? 
You would like one also, correct? :)
Well, now you can make one! Here is a step by step to make any of the pins below ... 

What you'll need: 
pink, red, white felt
embroidery thread and needle
stuffing, such as polyfill 
small black beads (for birds eyes)
hairpins or rubber bands or safety pins (if you'd like to make a pin instead)  
scissors 
the pattern - print below 
any other adornments you can think of - buttons, ribbons, beads, etc. 
(TIP: I bought a bag of hearts that can be sewn onto things at Wallmart for a few dollars) 

And that's it! Not many things at all, right? 


I used two kinds of stitches : 

Back stitch 

Buttonhole stitch 
 


For the true size of the pattern, please click on the photo below.
