Bloomie Pins

Couldn't get out for more fabric today.  Forgot that the stores are all closed.  But I had plenty of fabrics to experiment with for some more of the Bloomie Pins.  First I made a smaller template.  The first pins I did were TOO big.  But still fun.  I made three different sizes of petals.  I made one with a very pretty and sheer green fabric that matches the whirly twirly scarf perfectly.
Then, a cream colored pin.  LOVE this one!  So shabby chic.

Then I made a navy blue pin out of jersey knit.  And this one was so different in this fabric.  I love it.  I experimented with several different procedures and found a much better way to make and assemble them.  And I like the results much better.
This one is very nautical looking.
Or like this.
Or this.
Or like this.  I love them attached to bags.  I don't have enough for an Etsy shop yet, but I am thinking about it. 

Did you have your Black Eyed Peas today for a Prosperous and Healthy New Year?  We sure did! 
It's late.  I'm going to bed.  Happy New Year!!!

If you decide to sell the pins pass it along on the blog I would buy a few I have never sewen or done anything like that but I love the hand made flowers trend!

Put my name at the top the list for when that etsy shop is running:) I had actually seen these awhile back (it was last Valentine's Day actually) and went and bought all I needed to make a few for friends. Being that I am completely crafty-defunct...they were pitiful and certainly were never gifts. I still have a lot of pins, though. I think these are the cutest little accessories! and I will shop from your store:)


And I do love those new years black eyed peas!! (the rest of the family...not so much!)

I LOVE those pins! They would beautifully dress up any outfit. I was looking for a gray one to wear on my dress to our younger son's wedding 9/19/09 and never found one. Alas, where were you then? I could have ordered one! You really should consider Etsy as a venue for selling them.

Best,
Bonnie

Do it, do it, do it!! Open up an Etsy shop!! These are adorable!! I think people would buy them and you can start up an fb page with them too. If you really like doing it, you could get some major business! Do it!
