    Default Help finding Hat Pin findings, etc.

    I wonder if anyone can help me with this. I want to make some hat pins and wonder where the best place is to go for the findings, etc.

    Dips is probably the best person to ask!

    Hobby House sell a kit (it was on C&C over the weekend, but is not on the site anymore). This is the link (direct to their web site)

    Thanks EssexAnne and Deefersmum. I saw the kit on C & C Deefersmum but I really want separate bits so I can make them in the colours I need. I knew someone on here used to make the most gorgeous hat pins - it could well have been Dips EssexAnne; hopefully someone will come along :joyous:

    Sue Wilson makes her own hat pins and Creative Expressions now source 'the bits' to make hat pins. If you search for Creative Expression suppliers you should be able to find some one who sells them.

    Here's some sites:

    Thank you so much PP that gives me a start. Strangely it's the blank pins I am having most difficulty with.

    Check out eBay, I have bought loads of jewellery making stuff on there. Sometimes I have had to wait a wee while as it comes from China, but there are also companies here in the UK that stock virtually everything one could ever need.

    Always look on the bright side, if you can't find it then polish up the dull side.

    Hi Granny Penny, just back on the forum myself in the last few days, but I think I can help!

    I have 2 tutorials on my blog
    http://www.dipsdesigns.com/2012/01/c...-tutorial.html
    http://www.dipsdesigns.com/2012/04/d...ext-steps.html

    I generally source my items off eBay and the Next Steps tutorial uses the exact terms you'd need to search for on EBay to find the items. I can also recommend Southampton Bead Shop http://www.dipsdesigns.com/2012/01/c...-tutorial.html which is the only place I can find the tiny rhinestone rondelle spacers that I absolutely love.

    I've also just filmed a video tutorial on hat pins and hope to load it to YouTube in the next week or so.
