Rosespetitiemison lovely post about Half Moon Bay
I love this post because when I was a little girl every October we would go to Half Moon Bay to pick pumpkins. If you do not know about HMB, it is the little farm town on the ocean. Imagine fields of pumpkins growing by the sea. I know it it has changed in the last 40 years. But when I was a little girl, it was this small Victorian farming community. I have sweet memories. Thank you Rosemary for the reminder.
After I posted about the fabric leaves and mentioned making a pin out of them, I thought I would actually do it. I cut flowers from felted wool and one from wool felt.
How I cut a flower is to cut a square and fold it in half and then in half again. I trim the edge in a heart shape. Do not worry about it being perfect (as you will see above mine is not) because I then go around the edge and trim it more. Plus you really only see one side, so do not try for a perfect round flower.
I cut two small leaves. I glued the leaves, a length of ribbon and topped with an acorn.
If you do not have any pin-backs, you can glue a safety pin and cover it with a bit of ribbon.
You know pine-cones, dried leaves, berries, feather would be wonderful. I am thinking these would be so charming pinned on a ribbon package.
