Felt Pins

I bought pin backs to try designing some felt pins last summer when I first started seriously planning Dreaming in Craft (way before it had a name!).  New projects (mostly plushies) came up and the pins got postponed over and over again.  I decided it was time to try to add some new products to the shop and since I have a couple of markets this month this seemed like the perfect time.  I have five designs drawn out and a list with tons of ideas all ready to go.  I only got two designs finished for the market last weekend.  I hope to have at least one more ready for next weekend.

This is what I have so far...



Happy Heart Pin






Balloon Pin







I layered three pieces of fabric to make it thicker.  I may still play around with the way I make them.  The layering seemed to work really well.  So far I think they came out pretty cute!  I'll keep you posted on new designs and changes I make to the current designs as I have them ready.



p.s.  You can now buy any of the pins in this post at Dreaming in Craft!  More colors and designs to come soon!

Thanks, Kate. I've been wanting to make some felt pins since last year but never got around to it. I was a little inspired by your cute pins to finally start trying out some of my ideas. I have a lot of other ideas left to try. :)
