Pinnie Pennant, Enamel Pin Edition


I picked up a few enamel pins at Quilt Market this fall and immediately had the start of a brand new addiction...er...collection. It took me a few months, but last week I finally made a larger version of my Pinnie Pennant tutorial so that I could display my new beauties, with plenty of room for more friends as they come along.


I tripled the size of the original pattern, leaving off the felt landing spot. The colored fabrics are all scraps of Liberty from my small stash, paired with some favorite black and white text prints. Since the larger version needs more stability, I swapped out the hanging string for a pair of twill tape loops and a thin wooden dowel. It's everything I wanted it to be and looks perfectly charming hanging over my cutting table.

I've decided that I might just need my own grown-up reward system involving a new enamel pin every time I accomplish something significant. Now I just have to haggle with my conscience over what constitutes significance. I'm guessing that one pin for each load of laundry folded might be pushing it a bit...

  1. I think one pin for every load of laundry is very reasonable. I may have to put this in place for myself. And make myself a pennant! very cool

  2. I’m inspired every time you post something so I think every project and definitely every laundry load deserves a pin! 😊. Lillian

  4. I've only recently began collecting so making a place for them to hang early on and watching the collection grow sounds perfect.

  5. Hey! I just finished folding two loads of laundry AND put it away. I think that is significant enough for two enamel pins! I have another load in the dryer that I am waiting for so I can finish making my bed...that would be two more enamel pins in my mind!
    Your Pinnie Pennant is so cute!

  7. I received 3 pins for Christmas and am pondering what to do with them and this might just be the perfect idea.
