Pin It


Felt artpin fun...

I'm just catching up taking pics of the last few days projects.... one of my favourites has been the Artpin swap hosted by Joy and Dawna. I've not made these before, but I guess alot of what I do could be converted into badges/brooches as long as I firm up the backs.
There are some gorgeous examples posted in the swap already, but I wanted to make something using different materials so there's always a variety when receiving them.
I started with a base of left-over wet felt, added merino tops by dry felting. I then embroidered shapes and knots in contrasting and complimentary colours. Embellishments added were angelina, brads and buttons.
I made 6, but only 3 are being swapped, so I'll have 3 to use in later projects- book fronts, textiles, collages...


I really hope whoever gets them likes them...


Sorry to add the verification box- I hate them so... but I've been getting alot of spam messages lately! Hopefully I'll be able to remove it in a while.xx
