Pretty Pens: A Tutorial

Not Too Nuts

DSCI0577

Just a quick one today.  I made these pins late last night which is why I am currently only half-awake.  I wanted something for Fall that wasn’t pumpkins and Halloween stuff.  I thought “why not acorns?”  I used scraps of fleece for the parts of the acorn and some felt to back them up since the fleece is a little flimsy.  I’m not sure about them, they aren’t quite as cute as I thought they would be.  Maybe I got the colors wrong, or possibly the shape since it was really hard to cut them.  I tried to mark the shapes but the chalk pencil didn’t show up very well on the dark fabric.  The funny thing is that they are about the same size as real acorns.  That’s something at least.

Here’s the updated list:

  • Hair elastics
  • Acorn pins
  • Tiny shoes
  • Tiny purses
  • Dress
  • Pencils
  • Cat toys
  • Tiny dresses
  • Cloth doll
  • Tiny accessories
  • Green dress

Six down, five to go.  The next project will be up by Friday for a very special reason. Cat face
