Hi everyone!

I went on a poppy pin making spree the other day and thought I'd share the fruits of my labour.  These pins are simple to make and are a great way to use up little scraps of fabric.  These pins all measure 3" wide.









Thanks for looking!  Let me know what you think! (or any ideas you might have to add some more FLAIR to these pins!)

Terrific idea! Thanks.

More "flair"? Sparkly buttons. Sparkly fabric -- maybe lame (laMAY, not lame Grin)

oh those are adorable!
as for added flair, i'm going to agree with the sparkly stuff Smiley
also, it might be less poppy-like, but maybe you could try cutting a round base, then a more squiggly or jagged middle piece of fabric, then a round piece again, then your button.?
anyways very cute pins, and a great way to use up scraps!
