felt pins tutorial

If you are in need of a last minute gift these are incredibly easy to make and will take less than 15 minutes. Pins are a great accessory for a jacket of coat. If you don’t want to use as a pin you can add a hair clip instead of a pin or just use for a gift wrap embellishment.

Felt Pin Tutorial

For the red & grey circle pin:

Step 1: Cut felt into different size circles. No need to measure just cut into different sizes.

Step 2: Layer the circles from largest to smallest.

Step 3: Add a button to the top of the layers and, using a sewing needle and thread, sew all the layers together.

Step 4: Use hot glue to adhere your bar pin to the back of the layers.

That’s it. You are done!

For the purple flower pin:

Step 1:  Cut 2 circles of various sizes and colors for your bottom two layers. Cut 4 circles of the same color and roughly the same size to make the petals.

Step 2: Working with one small circle at a time, fold the circle in half and then fold in half again so the circle is quartered and creates 1/4 of the flower. I put in a quick stitch at the point to hold it together.

Step 3: Layer the felt with largest circle on bottom, then next size then the quartered circles. You’ll put the point in the center of the felt to create a circle with the folded petals.

Step 4: Sew the center of the flower petals to the two layers of felt.
