You'll need: red, white and tan felt scraps, red and white floss, tan thread, needle, scissors, pin backing and glue.
Draw out your favorite mushroom shape. My top is about 1 2/3 inches across, the bottom is about 1 inch across. Lay out the pieces to check proportions.
Stitch the bottom of the mushroom onto the tan felt.
Stitch the cap on to the tan felt, overlapping the white. A dot of glue in the center will keep the cap positioned where you want it.
Decide if you want a pink or white heart, one or three hearts and the size(s) of heart.....
Stitch on the heart, tie off on the back. This is what the back looks like now:
Trim closely around your mushroom leaving a small border. Now the front of your brooch is finished!
Cut around the front part of the brooch to make a back piece for the pin.
Stitch the pin onto the back piece. Make it look a little nicer with a little heart detail.
Stitch the back onto the front with a small running stich. Tuck that stich under the mushroom so it doesn't show.
Now you're done and it's ready for your valentine!
