I try hard not to have favorites when I’m working on a craft book with projects, but when I saw this Valentine’s Day brooch Lisa Jordan designed for Heart-Felt Holidays, our follow-up to Fa la la la Felt, I fell deeply in love. The yard I played in as a child was bordered by the Appalachian Trail on one side and on the other side of that was a forest. I’ve been charmed by toadstools since I was young enough to believe fairies played beneath them.
If you’ve already bought Heart-Felt Holidays, grab some floss and felt and flip to page 26—this Mushroom Love Brooch is easy to make in just five steps and all the templates are included. If you haven’t bought the book yet, jump on over to B&N.com or Amazon and get a copy for under $10. It’s filled with holiday projects, including more for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter, too.
