Am I going to make these pins for my daughter’s teachers every year? Possibly. They are my favorite crochet flower.

This year I did a little something different with the backing. Instead of just sewing it on to the felt, I snipped two holes and poked the pin portion through. That way you don’t have to see the bracket on the back (like last year’s pins).

I can’t believe how long it took me to figure that out!

Did you do anything crafty for Valentine’s Day?

    What a brilliant idea! I also have sewn more than a few of those metal pinbacks onto pins. Not fun.

    I normally use a hot glue-gun to stick the pin down, then add another piece of felt to cover up its back. This is a great idea, cutting down on extra work, thanks!
