Santa Pins

This is what i have been doing today. 50 pins. First i Vliesofix some cream felt to the Santa face to stabilize it then i cut them out. I then pinned it onto some more felt then i appliqued it onto that, then i cut them out again, this time leaving a border.
Finished pins. On the back i made a tab of felt to hold the pin in an upright position and hot glued them into place. (I ran out of green felt and so i used whatever felt i had). Total cost of pins? $2.50 for 50 of them.
I also made two swaps, a Pincushion Swap and a Christmas Tree Decoration Swap, All ready for the Cloth Doll Club Christmas Party.
My son and his girlfriend came by and i helped them with their project, stapling elastic to masks and sewed the edges of a banner for them. This is what i call A Great Crafty Day. Not finished yet though, must eat something first before i get to finish the Softies, They will be finished by the end of the day and then photographed.

  1. Hi Sue,
    I think your cloth doll club will be very happy with their pins. It is a great idea. They are very cute and can be used for many Christmasses to come.
    Hugs, Sharon
