Every now and then I like to revisit old items that I have made and do a little tweaking. You may remember the Sweetheart Suzy Pin tutorial that I put together in early 2009. The folded petals are flat at the base and curve upward at the tips.
I decided to see what it would look like with a tiny bit of fiberfill added to the petals .
The petals now look like little puffy pointed pillows. I like it.
Instead of a tufted center, I went with a stack of coordinating buttons.
Although the method is similar to the original, the end product looks slightly different. It now has a really nice chunky feel to it. I hope that you give this a try.
It has been a very busy past couple of weeks for our family. My son is now settled in his dorm room and my hubby and I have become temporary empty nesters (if you exclude the fur and feathered babies that also call this place home). It has suddenly become very quiet around here and something that the hubs and I will need to get used to.
I hope you have a wonderful and creative day!
