Another basic craft for today ^_^ Pinwheels!
I’m sure you all made these in school out of paper but this is the more permanent version which can be an adorable hair accessory or brooch depending on the size you make them.
You need to cut out 2 felt squares, I cut mine by folding a piece of felt like this and cutting around it.
After cutting fold two of the points together and then again. Press the folds down so they leave a slight indent and unfold. This is the easiest way to mark out where you need to cut.
Snip down the folds but not all the way to the center. You should have something like this:
Repeat with the other sheet of felt.
Now you have the pieces you just need to fold it together! Place the pieces of felt on top of each other and fold one of the points to the center like this.
Fold every second point into the middle. You can move the different coloured felts so more of one or the other is displayed.
Stitch them in the middle.
And then cover the stitching with something pretty like this button I made in another post. You could use a ribbon bow or a flower too.
Stitch the whole thing to a bobby pin or a hair clip and that’s all there is to it. Yay for repurposed children’s crafts :D
