Pin keep, Colonial style
Here is a quick project.
Nice way to keep pins handy in a work basket, or use as an ornament.
Cut 2 circles each of cardboard, thin batting and velvet or linen.
Cut the fabric circles 1/2" bigger around.
Cover the card with batting and fabric and glue to reverse side.
Attach them back to back and whip stitch around the edge. I used ribbon.
Make a hanger if you like, I did on one.
Embroider the front with ribbon or thread. Or use a motif from lace.
Poke glass head pins around the edge.
The aqua with violets has a hand painted background.
The heart could be a Valentine.
