Craft a Week – Week 19

I ran my second Craft Club class on Sat night (more about that in my next post!) so I needed to make a few examples of the techniques I wanted to share with my crafty ladies!

This little project is great for using up fabric scraps and once you get the technique down is super easy…would be great done with paper too.

I actually stiffened my fabric with double sided iron on paper sandwiched between the two bits of fabric (this also means it won’t fray!)

What you need:

pinwheel post 1

Firstly cut a square from your fabric, this one is approx 3″x 3″ and make a great statement brooch, but a 2″x 2″ is a nice size for a hair clip…

pinwheel post 2

Make diagonal cuts towards the center of the square but stopping approx 0.5/1cm away from the center


Then take one corner and fold into the middle, go round the square folding in each corner to the center and secure with a pin


You can then stitch a button on the front to hold the corners down and hide any stitching. I also sewed a brooch back to the reverse but you can also use glue if you are a bit sew phobic!

Et voila!

Pinwheel final

If you make this please link up via #craftaweek on twitter, I would love to see the results!
