This tutorial was originally posted on my old blog in 2010. It’s one of the very first tutorials I ever created so I hold it dear to my heart. Since St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, I thought I’d dig it out of the archives to share today!

Supplies Needed:

• Felt (red, orange, yellow, green colors)
• Embroidery floss (red, orange, yellow colors)
• Pinback
• Kraft glue
• Sewing needle
• Scissors

Step Five:

Stitch the pin onto the back of the rainbow, making sure to only poke your needle through one layer of felt. (You could also use a hot glue gun to do this).
