July has been an exciting month for love here.
With an engagement, and a few spectacular weddings, my inspiration this month is somewhat of a dreamy romantic nature.
The Yarns Lovers’ Shawl Pin eBook (you can get it here if you don’t already have it), a few craft materials, and only 2 grams of yarn per pin, combine to make these dreamy pins.
Step 1: Materials
The materials used are as listed in the eBook, with the following yarns.
The yarn used, clockwise from the left, is Drops Kidsilk in Light Pink, Rowan Fine Lace in Antique, Drops Lace in Powder Pink, and Malabrigo Lace in Pink Frost.
Each pin used only 2 grams of each yarn.
I chose 3mm wide satin ribbon and felt both in white, and added some size 8/0 seed beads in pink with a silver lining.
Step 2: Making the Components
Make 3 yarn balls per pin (as per module 1 of The Yarn Lovers’ Shawl Pin eBook) and cut out 3 leaves per pin from the felt using the template worksheet (found in module 2). I used the long pointed leaf, the oak leaf, the wide pointed leaf, and the 7-pointed leaf.
Step 3: Construction
Assemble the pins as per the instructions in The Yarn Lovers’ Shawl Pin eBook.
I’m quite smitten of these four unique pins as a collection together. Especially when paired with a matching Starter Bouquet.
Who knows, if you have a yarn loving friend who is getting married, perhaps you could be the one to make her a very unique bouquet and boutonniere collection.
