Ten Minute Poppy Pin

Here's a quick little something to whip up-
 once supplies are gathered, the entire process takes about 10 minutes. 

Step 1: Cut the Machine Pre-felt into 5 1/2inch and 3 inch squares. Round the corners. 

 Step 2. Use wool roving and loosly needle felt into place for the center of the flower. This will hold the layers together once felted. 

Step 3: Use warm water and a few drops of dish soap to felt.

Step 4. Squish, ball up, roll, and tug at the wool until it shrinks by about half the size. The wool will  thicken and be more secure in the process.Squeeze out the water. 

Step 5. Sew pin on Pin-back

Step 6. Enjoy your new pin!
