Felt Flower

Felt is a fun fiber to incorporate into your jewelry designs, and this pin (see Figure 14-1) is one of those no-brainer projects that you can make in only a few minutes. The longest part of the entire process is waiting for the glue to dry. Add one to the lapel of your overcoat or blazer; attach one to your favorite hat to give it an updated look; or pin it onto the handle of your purse. Flowers are forever "in" as fashion statements. You can buy these felt flowers, available in a variety of colors, from vendors, such as Ornametea (www.ornamentea.com), that specialize in mixed-media supplies and fiber supplies. Buy them by the dozen because you'll want to make a lot of these.

For this project, we use glue to attach the pin back to the felt flower. However, if you think you may want to use the flower for something else later on, try using a needle and thread instead of glue. Sew the flower onto the pin back, and you can simply cut the threads off later. You'll have your felt flower to do with as you please.
