Wool Poinsettia Pins

These are made from felted wool in red and green. I machine stitched the two layers of red petals to a background of green wool. Then I cut close around the red to suggest the greenery surrounding the blossoms. There are several different greens here, some of them hand-dyed.

The yellow centers are french knots stitched with size 3 perle cotton. I love how these turned out and put one on my coat right away!
