ART of the HEART Brooch

  Begin with some white fabric. Batting. Timtex.  
Sandwich them together, and start creating a beautiful expression of art with other colors, strips of fabrics, fibers, decorative stitches, free motion, buttons, beads and glitz! (YES... I love to add beading 'by machine').  You can use the search box and see previous posts on beading!

When finished, cut it up into any shape you like.  I cut this one into a heart shape.  

Finish the edge by couching on fibers and using a zig zag stitch (I like to do it free motion)

  Available in my Etsy shop here.
 I finished the back with a pin, glued on with fabric glue, which has worked really great for me.  General directions were posted here.  Other variations can be seen here.
