Put A Pin it!

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Here’s another project that I recently finished for work. I wanted to play off a Día de los Muertos aesthetic but interpret it in a new way. Foam-core was used for the base and standard sewing pins to created the larger image. After that, I used bright thread to fill in the rest of the piece.

I love how it turned out and I have so many other ideas I can’t wait to try this technique on! This first one was quite ambitious and terribly time consumming but I learned some valuable tricks along the way. I’ll be sure to share more projects soon!

DIY Valentine Pins

Friday, February 6th, 2009

I wanted to leave you this week with a lovely little Valentine project for the weekend ahead. Molly, over at the always charming Purl Bee, posted this simple tutorial on how to make Valentine Felt Pins. You can get the full template and directions along with more pictures here. These would be great attached to a card saying “Stuck on You!” or “I’m PIN Love with You!” Hahaha! Ok, maybe not the last one… Anyway, I can’t wait to get started on my own set. Happy weekend everyone!
