Ever since Dot at Dabbled posted her darling felt-pin tutorial last week, I was itching to give it a shot.
While I know next to nothing about felting (yarn and knitting related, something to do with washing it I think? It's on my list to explore...) I used regular store-bought felt. I have a feeling that actual felted yarn would be more dense, and hold its shape better for a project like this.
The first pin I made I did straight off the tutorial, but without the die-cutter (I wish, I wish, I wish I had a die-cutter!) or even pinking shears (why don't I own a pair?!) and using a heart-shaped button in the center:
Then I made a couple of flowers... recognize that color scheme? They may pop up again...
The final pin I made is for Mariah's Get Better Box and it's my favorite:
Quick, easy, and adorable - my favorite kind of project! This one will be used again and again I'm sure. Thanks, Dot!
