new pin sets for spring

I found some beautiful vintage ribbon at an antique shop while I was on vacation in Texas a couple of weeks ago. I started making pin sets. Instead of packaging these as usual in plastic I tried attaching them to ribbon and then to a card. I'm planning to make a small line of fabric pins for spring and I thought it would be nice to be able to touch the fabrics before buying. This will be nice for shows and brick & mortar shops. Unfortunately you can't touch before you buy in my etsy shop. But just being outside the plastic helps, I think.

I should add that the specific set pictured here is mylar covered which completely contradicts everything I just wrote. The ribbon was not quite wide enough to cover the pin entirely so I ended up covering with mylar. I do have several other fabrics that will not be mylar covered - they'll have the fabric exposed. I'll be adding more to my etsy shop soon!
