New Wool Pins

I made these a few weeks ago from scraps of wool felt left over from other projects.  I wanted to figure out what I could do with sweater cuffs after the sweater had been washed.  I decided to cut a short length and flat sew the edges and then gather the trimmed side.
And then I put a felt cut out or button or vintage earring in the middle. 
This one turned out really cute!
I made this stack of hearts from shades of pink and then a cream color heart on top.
Here is another cuff flower...this one is a fail though...the more I look at it the more it looks to me like bunny rabbit poo in the middle of the flower! It actually is a vintage earring that I spray painted chocolate brown.  I alternate thinking that this looks like either a pile of chocolate bridge mix or the bunny poo that I mentioned earlier!
Now I am off to make a toddler dress and a garland for a bridal shower this next weekend and a wool rose wreath for my niece.
