Friday Finish: Pin Catcher

Recently, I have become obsessed with enamel pins, especially crafty enamel pins. My collection is still rather small, but I foresee it growing and wondered how collectors displayed their pins. A search of Pinterest resulted in some interesting options, so I made two different projects.
A feature mentioned in the tutorial is the hoop allows for the backings to remain on the pins (unlike storing them on a cork board). Also the depth of the hoop prevents any marks left on the wall from the pin backs. I have mine hanging on the pegboard so it really doesn't matter, but I like the option of placing on my wall without worries.
I think this project though is my favorite so far for "catching" pins! I found the Twenty Minute Tote directions easy to follow (though it took me a bit longer than 20 minutes...a bag maker I am NOT) and was proud that I managed to upcycle a denim jeans pocket for placing my new pins.
The Melody Miller panel has been in my stash too long! It's satisfying to finally use a favorite fabric. I made sure the telephones were on the side WITHOUT the pockets so they can be seen.
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts. Hope you have a fantastic weekend! Thanks for stopping by,
