Needle-felting Valentine Heart Pins with Jo Eaton
Pins can be adapted to necklaces or ornaments!
These pins were originally designed to go on Jo's crocheted hats but they quickly became a favorite accessory at craft shows. They are worn on sweaters, vests, jackets, hats and come with a card that expresses love. They are great for sharing with someone special!
This workshop will provide a history of fleece and needle felting then leads you through making your own needle felted heart pins. Choose your colors from an assortment of felts and yarns. Beads will be available for embellishment and then we will attach the pin backs.
