Pile o' Sprouts

Since I'm making all of these felt pincushions, I thought I'd also make some pins to go with them. I call them Sprouts. They're super easy to make. Just take a small pinch of some FIMO clay, roll it into a ball and then stick the head of a pin into the bottom. Pinch it a bit so it will stay on. Stick the pin into a piece of bread so they stand up when you dry them in the oven. Then spray them with clear when they're done. I made a bunch of these a long time ago when I got disgusted with those little plastic thingys always falling off the pins. The tutorial is here. I'll usually sit and make these while watching tv.


Awwww, aren't they cute? I was actually wearing this on my wrist yesterday (without the pins). What a weirdo I am.
