Hah, I feel kind of silly posting this picture as it's also my avatar, but here:

http://bibliographic.net/deadmedia/sa/amada2.jpg

I made this a few weeks ago and it is my new favourite accessory (not to sound completely immodest). I just cut out a vague flower shape from a piece of felt, and then cut out a piece of fabric in the same shape. Then, I sewed the two together, being careful to go "around" instead of "through" (I'm sorry! I don't know the terminology!) so the ends won't fray. That part takes a while, but eventually you hit your stride.

Fasten it to your shirt with a pin in the middle, and you're set!

wow!  i like yours way better than the felt flower i posted!!!  so many more possibilites when you use fabric & so many options w/ the cool one inch buttons!!  i really like it!!so, i think you basically did a zig zag stitch all around it.  what does your button mean, though??

Thanks! Oh, and I looked it up (it took a while!), and the stitch I used is called an overcast stitch.

"Soy amada" is Spanish for "I am loved". There's some place online where you can get a bunch of pins that say "I am loved" in a bunch of languages.
