Pin Wheel Ornament – Brooch Tutorial


Hi! I hope you have enjoyed your weekend! My Pin Wheel Ornament-Brooch Tutorial is featured at ‘SewMamaSew’! They have 7th Annual ‘Handmade Holidays’ series which is all about tutorials! Thank you Jessica for picking my ornament!

Pin Wheel Felt Brooch

For this Brooch I used fleece which has white and blue squares and that made the colour changes like that.

This Pin Wheel Ornament is made with upcycled knitting. White fleece or felt is good, too – or any colour you like. I have few of these available in my etsy shop.

My Tutorial can be found HERE and in the page ‘Tutorials’. It’s worth of visiting ‘SewMamaSew’ because there is so many lovely ideas for Christmas inspiration! For example Scrappy Stocking Ornaments! I shall absolutely make bundle of them! I have this button also on  my sidelist so you can easily hop there any time you like.

Have you entered our give away? If not click HERE and be prepered for a mystery question! I was almost sure that no one can find the answer … it seems to be that I might be right. I just hope you don’t beat me when you learn what it is. Give away is open till 26th of November and then Nero will pick the winner and I think it’s better if he tells you also the answer for the mystery!

I want to say Thousands of Thanks to all of You for reading my blog, following and Welcome to all our new followers! Thank you for taking the time to leave comments! I relly enjoy reading your comments – especially for this give away! See you soon!
