Painted Face Pin

I'm baaaack! :) I made this fancy face pin a few months ago using all scraps laying around my desk It measures about 1 3/4" diameter (minus the lace). This is not really a tutorial since some pictures of the process before painting went missing. 

Here's how to make one:

1. Cut a cotton fabric into a circle measuring 2" in diameter. Sketch a face straight onto the fabric. Paint the face with fabric paints using a really small brush. Add eye brow, facial expression & make up as desired. Let the paint dry. You might want to leave the room while it's  drying because there isn't any pleasant fragrance added to the paint. :)

2. Iron a lightweight interfacing to the back of the fabric. Cut a small piece of felt into a circle measuring 1 3/4" in diameter.

3. Sew the two fabric circles together with a blanket stitch. Leave a small opening for stuffing the polyfill. Sew shut the opening with a blanket stitch.

4. The back side looks like this. You can sew some fancy lace to the back as you wish. Hot glue a pin to the back side. You can use the pin to adorn any plain bags or pouches.

This small sack measures about 7"h X 5.5"l. 

Happy crafting & to all Muslim crafters, I'd like to wish you a blessed Ramadan.
