DIY- adorable broaches

I decided that I should make some of my artsy gal pals a cute little broach.  :)  Yoda refused to get out of the picture.  He does love the camera.
Supplies:
1.  Felt- Assorted Colors
2.  Needle
3.  Emrboidery Thread- Fun Vibrant Colors.
4.  Stuffing
5.  Buttons- for bedazzeling!

Steps:
1.  Cut your shapes of your broach.  You will need two cut outs of the broach- one for the front and one for the back.  Some ideas are below.. 
2.  Sew on the buttons.  Make some eyes.. Put some on for decoration!
3. Sew the front to the back.  Leave a hole for the stuffing.
4.  Stuff your broach- only if you want a puffy broach.
5.  Sew up your broach
6.  Attach Safety pin to back of broach.
7.  Give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.  :)
I hope they like them :) I didn't stuff the mustache because I thought it looked better with out stuffing. 

PS if you haven't entered my giveaway- the winner will be picked on Friday.
