FUN! Since we're on the subject of pinwheels (and you know me and my "felting" projects), it never occurred to me to make felt pinwheels, for obvious reasons, like they won't turn. However, making them from felt and using them as a decorative piece is a great idea! They look so pretty and whimsical as wall art, don't you think?! Craftionary has the tutorial to Making Felt Pinwheels Wall Art. P.S. Use any of the patterns available above!

Arthur Tess - A definition of surrealism was once "a sewing machine on an operating table" meaning - taking things out of their original context with a displacement of location. Every photograph is kind of like that actually ... removing things and people from their natural life flow and putting them in a kind of frozen freeze frame.
