Continuing with my brooch making enjoyment and having run out of cat and dog face buttons for the time being, I found a flower shaped template just begging to be used. Using felt, home tie-dyed t-shirt fabric, a flower shaped button and a selection of seed beads I came up with this pretty little flower brooch. It's the perfect size for wearing on clothes this summer, or even to brighten up your accessories like your handbag or perhaps a belt. It's available in my shop at Folksy and Dreamaid.
I made another just for my daughter Katie, and she found a new use for it - a fashionable flower hair decoration (although you'd have to be careful with not to hurt yourself with the pin). Used with a hairgrip to keep it securely in place, I think it looks really attractive.
