The bowling pin was actually much easier to make than I expected:
1. I made this pin silhouette stencil and cut out two pins from white felt.
2. Wrong sides together, I sewed them together with a 1/4" allowance leaving the bottom open to stuff and hand sew closed.
3. I wrapped some red ribbon around the neck of the pin and knotted at the back, leaving enough ribbon to tie a bow and make a hanger. I took some red embroidery thread and stitched parts of the ribbon to make sure the stripes don't overlap in front.
By the way, the lanes were jammed packed. Who knew bowling was such a popular activity in Los Angeles on a Saturday night?
