Bought Pinkeep Stuff!

Lynne and I went to JoAnn's the other evening and I bought "stuff" to make a pinkeep! I got a piece of foam board that I'm not sure will work, but I'm going to try it. I think I can lace my fabric and XS together around the edges then put on the trim and pins.

I found some very pretty fabric quarters that were on sale, too, and despite the fact that I swore I would NOT add fabric to my stash because I don't sew, it was too tempting to pick this up to use to finish my XS. I guess I'm doomed to start collecting fabric, too!

I ended up getting some gold-headed pins. I had no idea the things were so expensive! I also got a package of white pearl ones that are actually corsage pins. Most of the pins were just too small, but that's probably just my perception from looking at pictures of pinkeeps. I'll know more once I actually make one.

This is what I'm going to use for my first one...

It's by Homespun Elegance and I have a very pretty dark green fabric for the back. I just hope I don't ruin it! LOL
