I made a couple pins lately, for no particular reason. Tongue



I adore this one madly. I had seen one sort of like it on Etsy, and had worked out in my head how it might work, and then I saw this tut over at Blissed Out, via One Pretty Thing, which confirmed what I had been thinking, so I went for it. I can't even begin to say how much I love it, lol. And I don't even wear things like this. :p




This one, I made just because I had the idea stuck in my head, so I just did it. It's the exact same concept as the Japanese hairpin tut in my sigline down below, but on a larger scale, and obviously different fabrics.

Cute?? Grin

I love how the polka-dot pin's leaves curl over like that, so cute!

The poppy is wonderful. With more layers it would make a nice peony too.

Thanks, guys! Cheesy

The fabric for the poppy is actually just acetate lining..you know, for lining a skirt? So simple. I love it! :p

I can see why the poppy is your favorite. You did an amazing job on it.

I love poppies.  They both look great, but I love the poppy.  Smiley

Both are super cute.  My name is Poppy, so you can probably guess which one I am drooling over.  Love the polka dots, too!  Pins are the best, so many things you can do.  Thanks for posting the links.
