Kilt Pins

I joined the "Kilt Pin Swap" on ANUK.
What a great idea of Kari's.

I thoroughly enjoyed making these. As they were for Valentines Day I felt they needed a heart on them hence the fabric hearts.
The hearts were pieces of textile that I had over from another project I just cut them to shape and zig zagged the edges. A bit fiddly but well worth it I think.
I now have a little box of hearts!

The first pin went to Jill and the other I have been using myself but maybe it will go to Laura (my daughter) as she comes home for a few days this weekend.

Your pin is wonderful Alis. The fabric heart works just great as an embellishment. It really sets the pin off.

These are fun. Love the heart.

Oooooh - ALIS - these are totally scrumptious and I love all the other work in your blog lately too particularly your prints and your studio looks lovely.

The little hearts are so perfect, totally gorgeous. Maybe I should drag my machine out and whizz up some embellishments of my own... more wishful thinking

Has anyone else noticed how it is always Mummy when they want something?
