Easter Fabric Pinwheels

{or one more way to use fabric scraps}

A couple of weeks ago I decided to decorate my house for Easter in yellow and purple…well, that was a couple of weeks ago. Since than I changed my ideas and colour preferences too many times. And since we have a four year old girl I decided to go for something bright, cheerful and fun.

I always try to use my fabric scraps and I wanted to have a go at pinwheels making for a while now, so it just seemed the perfect opportunity.



I am sure you have seen plenty of pinwheel tutorials so I am only going to show you a brief photo summary of the steps – really easy!

The pin wheels are made out of fabric and fleece and are attached together with a piece of Vliesofix / Bondaweb ( the same stuff you use for appliqué). If you don’t have matching fleece you can just attach together two pieces of fabric – either complementing or the same. 

If you use fleece make sure you iron the Vliesofix / Bondaweb to the fabric piece and than iron the fabric piece to the fleece – as shown on the photos.

 

 Wishing you a lovely sunny week!

Love,
Irina xx
