This is still a work in progress for me to find the best way to make fabric pins - I'm thinking about mounting them on tiny pieces of wood for example - but for now here is how I make them.
I complete each one individually so I start by fusing steam a seam 2 lite to the back of a bunch of fabric (quite often I just use scraps of fused fabric that I have left over from other projects). I cut up several small (2" x 1.5", 2" x 2", 2" x 1.75" etc) rectangles from a piece of interfacing or craft bond that is fusible on one side. This will be the backing for each tiny landscape.

I trim the edges to the desired size with my rotary cutter. Oops. This one is still a little crooked.
For the next step I want to prepare the felt layer and the backing. In the end there should be a fabric layer, interfacing, felt and fabric backing. So I fuse backing fabric to pieces of felt.
Next, I cut them apart and trim them leaving a 1/8" border of felt. Make sure your rotary cutter blade is sharp because it has to cut through all four layers.
