New Line of Felted Pins

I have been experimenting with making felted pins recently and now my mind is racing a mile a minute with ideas. I like the way that they are developing so far and I hope they will become popular once they get some exposure.

I absolutely love the color and look of this rose on black. Little beads accent the wildflowers. This one is listed on SilkFair and you can be sure there will be more to come in this style.

I gave this one away as a prize for the EtsyForCharity May Challenge winner. The tulips scream spring to me and who can resist spring?

I named this one Waterlilly as it reminded me of the beautiful wild flowers that sprout up along the edges of streams. I love the color and the shape of the flower. A single bead represents the flower center and the simplicity is stunning. This one is listed on Etsy.

I plan to continue to make these sweet pins with variances in the background shapes and colors. Once the ideas in my head settle down and I can focus on the best ones, you can find more of these in my shops.
Please feel free to leave a comment and mention what you would like to see!

I love the tulips, but I am partial to anything with blue!
How about one with a pi sign for math teachers! Doesn't everyone celebrate pi day on March 14th?

Never thought of felted pins. I especially like the tulip one. The pinks pop.
