I'm trying to put together a little somethin' for a certain somethin' I have planned for the near future. Somethin' springy. Somethin' fun. These mini pinwheels will be perfect for what I have in mind!
I've put together quite a few - they're a snap to make! It's been fun going through my fabric scraps and mixing and matching festive patterns and spring-time colors.
I've had two tutorials for making fabric pinwheels on my list of things to try and I used elements of both to create this batch of pinwheel goodness. I used the fabric preparation steps in Little Jenny Wren's tutorial for Pinwheel Bobbypins (what size to cut my fabric, how to use the iron on fusible web stuff, etc.). I referred to a Spring Fling Fabric Pinwheels tutorial from Choochmagooz to figure out how to use a needle, thread and button to transform a square of fabric into a darling little pinwheel. Both of these tutorials will yield beautiful results if you're in the mood pinwheels!
You've probably noticed that my pinwheels have little threads hanging from them...that's because I haven't figured out what to attach them to yet. The possibilities are endless. They could be used to accessorize so many things!
