My next bit of fun came after seeing these Liberty Pinwheel brooches crafted by Betz White. I have been looking for something different to make for Canada Day and I felt these were perfect. I made the kids appliqued t-shirts last year, and wanted something for myself. There isn't much in the stores except the usual, and I don't want to attend the parade in a t-shirt that says "Canada Kicks Ass." It' just not me! I ended up making 8 pinwheels from red and white felt and maple leaf fabric. Three I made into brooches:
They can be worn on either hats or t-shirts:
The remaining five I left without ribbons and for now they are adding a bit of patriotic color to my front door:
I thought perhaps they might look nice with some red and white bunting, but I think that will be my project for next year.
Have a lovely day!
