Funky flower brooches

I knew as soon as I saw this tutorial to make felt flower brooches that I had to give it a try. In the end I made three brooches to give as presents this Xmas but I forgot to take a photograph of one of them before I gave it away! The brooch above was for my mother, and ended up larger than I would have liked but I reckon it would look great on a coat or a hat.

This green and turquoise brooch was for my sister-in-law. After I had sewn around the back of the brooches and added the pin, I cut a circle of felt and and glue-gunned it in place to seal the whole thing and give a better finish.

All three brooches were rather large and un-wieldy so I need to put some practise in to make some more delicate ones!

I love the black and white one and I love the fact that they're big - the black and white one would make a fab scarf pin.
ps: have changed my name from mommyslastnerve to hampshiremamaoffour in case you're thinking "who's this?" lol xx
