You can use an H hook for these hearts and the come out as the perfect size for a cozy appliqué.

‘If you want to add a contrasting color, attach as shown below.  Then slip stitch around the entire heart. Fasten off. Tie off in the back to secure and use one of the tails to sew on button.  Weave in ends of contrasting color behind button.

Use one of the tails from the heart to sew on the pin on the back.

And there you have it!
