"Felt" like sewing

I've been having the best time making things out of the thrifted clothing I felted recently. These are a couple of the pins I made from old wool sweaters and suits. And another little piece of the tattered quilt. As I said before, I love sewing on this fabric. It feels so nice and doesn't ravel. It's been soo cold here lately, and in the evening I've been sitting by the fire watching TV and making these.
I figured out a way to cover the pin hardware too, so that the only part that shows is the pointy bit you need to attach it to a coat or bag. If you are interested I have these on etsy.

Waaahhh! Your blanket stitch looks better than mine...maybe I'm making mine to big.
Cute cute pins. They are easy to carry with you too...like to sit in the doc's office or something...

lovely! I love sewing on felt too, and what a great way to recycle wool clothing. Yup, sitting by the fire stitching..can't get much better than that.

I love the pins! They are adorable - you inspire me to do the same. I need to get some fabric and wool and get going. Thank you for sharing.
