Felty Rings

 Well I'm guessing most of you have seen (and fallen in love with) Mollie Makes?

The latest issue came with a little felt ring pack on the front and I thought, oh sweet I could do something with them.  To be honest I wondered how robust they would be with a felt shank, and dug through my jewellery making bits and found some metal sieve ring shanks.

Thats better, I could see this being robust enough to be worn every day.


Recently I have been doing a bit of sewing and I sometimes use a wrist pin cushion, it's rather annoying as it tends to get in the way a bit and keeps moving round my wrist so I thought, why not make a pin cushion ring?

So that's what I did.  This is my favourite little thing at the minute, it's so handy to have and I've used it loads already. 

Actually I'm off out tonight for a family meal and I'm planning to wear mine as a ring in it's own right!

These are quite easy to make, if a little fiddly; but why not give it a go. 



You will wonder how you lived without one. 

If you can't bear the thought of all that snipping and miniature sewing, I have popped a few in my shop (I know I'm shameless).

I am not feeling it with the Mollie Makes free kits at all but you have made the rings look great! I love the pincushion element too. Great idea! Could you send me a Pinterest invite please? I keep seeing it but can't get on. I did request an invite on someone's blog but heard no more about it. Have a nice night. x

Any ideas? xxxx
