Nicole from The Felted Fox shares a problem that many crafters will be familiar with. “When I first started to sew, every piece of fabric seemed important. After each project I would end up with a pile of scrap fabric that I just couldn’t bring myself to throw out,” she says.
Recently, Nicole came up with a cute way to use up some of the small pieces of scrap felt that she’d stockpiled. These adorable squirrel pins are made from white and gray felt fabric. Nicole embroidered faces on them. See the hearts that make up the ears and nose? That makes them extra cute for Valentine’s Day! After stuffing them for added dimension, Nicole attached safety pins to the back of these little squirrels to turn them into pins. What a fun way to use up those scraps!
