Shawl Pins are not just for Shawls

Shawl Pin and Hat Buttons make wonderful compliments to your handmade knit and crochet pieces......

So simple and yet so sweet
Teal is popular this season and here's a teal with neutral roses to wear with many colors
A new buckle for me. A closed top loaded with roses and matching stick!
A tisket a tasket, a sage and lilac basket
A nice grouping - would you like to open your jewelry drawn and find all of those waiting for you:)
Black and white - is there anything more classic

red riding-hood's basket of roses
wear with black, white, red and blue

all red
a scarf/cowl/hair stick
more teal - a very popular color this year
a petite pink wreath
a new design that forms a lovely cross of rosebuds in many colors
BLUE doesn't always mean sad, especially when you're wearing this
This is only a sample of the shawl pins I've been making but I'm so excited about them, I just can't stop.
You know, the 'shawl pin' is not an exclusively relegated to the! They look wonderful as a clasp to keep your scarf closed around your neck, as decoration on your cowl, the stick part alone works as a fastener or even a hair stick. So many uses in one small gift. I hope you all visit CreatingCottage on Etsy to see what I have now and what I've made in the past, that I'd be happy to make especially for you!

I'm sharing my shawl pins with................
