Minnie’s Patriotic Pin
Here she goes again — starting a new fashion trend with polka dots! Made from red and white buttons and a miniature blue polka-dot bow, this Minnie-inspired, Fourth of July holiday accessory is fun to wear pinned on a T-shirt, purse, baseball cap, or sun visor.
Arrange the ear buttons and the extra button on a flat surface as shown.
Hot-glue the head button in place atop the three buttons already in place, overlapping the ears a bit as shown.
Glue the medium-size face button in place atop the head.
Create a miniature bow by cutting a 2.75-inch length of ribbon. Fold the ends of the ribbon back so that they overlap and form a 1-inch bow.
Tie the bow tightly in the center with a piece of embroidery floss or string. Trim the ends of the floss or string short.
Hot-glue the bow in place at the base of one ear.
Flip the pin over and hot-glue a pin back to the center button, as shown, and your Minnie pin is ready to wear.
