felt flower brooch

This morning, whilst watching the Time Team guys on the search for Liberty's first factory (it was very cool, especially the bit where they were block printing by hand - just amazing), I finished up my brooch from yesterday's Brown Owls meeting:



I used this tutorial, and am pretty pleased with how it turned out - although I was a bit disappointed that it looks so flat.

In any case, I'm sure it will get loads of wear over the winter - a new brown and gold accessory is just what I need in time for the footy season to start this week! ;o)

  3. I remember that TimeTeam episode well, it was a fabulous one. Your brooch is so cute!! Have you thought about running a little gathering stitch down the back of the petals to give them a curve and make them less flat??

  4. I love your brooch so much!

    I think the one in the tutorial is higher because the felt is thicker (it's felted sweater). But I think yours is bloody awesome.
