A ways back, someone asked what she could do with puzzle pieces. I tried to describe these, but until I found them, could not do a good job. So, here they are!

Materials

Directions:

  1. With the puzzle piece on the fabric, cut around the piece with enough room to fold over the fabric.
  2. Making darts to allow for no bunching up, wrap and glue the fabric around the outer edge and leaving the inside with some slack or some "give room" but not much.

  4. With the glue gun, start by attaching the thread to the back, then turn over and start winding it around the outer and inner pieces, as shown.
  5. Do not glue each time you go around the back. When the desired effect is done, glue the thread and the pin back at the same time, cutting the end once it's glued. This keeps your fingers away from the glue.
  6. If you test the pin back and it comes off the item, don't despair. Cut off any built up glue and use the "hot" setting.

NOTE: Be careful! Never touch the hot glue with your fingertips. 2nd degree burns can and do occur!

Special Effects: Glitter glue little dots, hearts, or stars on the front.

With a little work, you can make a unique pin that looks like a mini puzzle. Choose your fabric, and put a thin layer of glue on it making sure it covers more than the size of the pin.
