Why HELLO, Lovely Felt Flower Brooch.

After almost two weeks of coughing, I've finally kicked the Evil Bronchitis of Doom. A few days ago I simply decided I was so over being sick, and that was the turning point. Coincidence, or mind over matter? At any rate, I'm relieved to finally feel human again.

While I was sick, I spent most of my time sipping tea, watching Once Upon a Time, and making felt flowers. At our wedding I want to have lots of felt flowers similar to those created my Muncle Fred Art on etsy. Since I have more free time than money, I'm making my own flowers, and they look really good!

While I was at it, I made this brooch, too. It's gotten so many compliments at work, and it was super easy. I just made 3 small flowers using these instructions, glued them to a felt circle with a few leaves from a sprig of fake flowers, and glued a pin back onto the whole shebang. VoilĂ !

I'm looking forward to a full weekend: Tonight we're seeing the Flaming Lips and Black Keys. Saturday we're working on our super secret project. And on Sunday we're going to a backyard barbecue to celebrate a friend's birthday. What are you doing this weekend?

  1. I LOVE IT! I think I am totally capable of doing this project. I love broaches so it seems like a craft that I will actually use.

    Also, hugely jealous that you are going to see the lips/keys tonight. Those tickets went on sale right after I lost my job and I couldn't rationalize it. Have so much fun!

    1. Try it! They're lightweight, so they're great on cardigans. I had some brooches that were pretty but so heavy they stretched my sweaters and made them look weird. These won't do that... promise!
