If you don't know what "cheater quilt" fabric is, it's basically fabric that looks like it was pieced together already. I found some that was so many different combinations, just depending on where you cut it.
I made these cool pins.
The cost is about 4 cents per unit, and I sold them for $2.00!

You are my favorite type person, I do a lot of crafts & also do a newsletter for many of us crafters that are pen pals, I would love to connect with you & share ideas. Please contact me thru here...I hope.
I WOULD LOVE TO MAKE ITEMS LIKE THAT, BUT AM HAVING A HARD TIME FINDING THE FABRIC. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
DO I HAVE TO USE MY SEWING MACHINE?
IT IS BROKE.
I find the fabric at almost any place from Walmart to Joannes. You can go on eBay and put in fabric in crafts, then put in cheater quilt in front of fabric and it will link you up.
No, you don't have to have a sewing machine, I just wanted it to be more quilted looking. You can do it by hand, esp' if you are doing it on a small scale. Keep in mind, I made 300 so I sewed the seam all the way down the felt each direction, then cut the hearts out afterward.
Let me know if I can help any further!

I am submitting some fabric to look for on ebay right now.
Thank You for taking the time to carefully write out the directions. It's an amazing looking piece of jewelry! ...I do have 3 easy questions for you.
1) Can you use liquid starch or do you need to use fabric stiffener which cost much more?
2) What brand of fabric stiffener do you prefer?
3) What type of glue did you use? I've found that many glues simply don't work for long (like Elmer's & super glue) I've had some success with 2 part epoxy, but my all time favorite (for most projects) is E6000.
