ring a ring a roses

have been making some more brooches!
really love these, so therapeutic to make, cut out on sizzix machine with very thick felt - so difficult to get hold of!!!

I actually have used the hot glue gun to hold these instead of sewing this time, then sewed the pin to the back and glued onto a leaf from the thick felt (think its almost a cm thick this one!

  1. These are beautiful brooches. I am struggling to get felt that will cut with my dies. But I will keep persevering if I can get as lovely results as you. Thank you for sharing at Crafty Cardmakers!! Cxx

    1. Hi Paula - thanks for taking the time to pop to my blog. Think all the things you mentioned are the reasons felt's not working for me. Have been trying with my Spellbinders - was sure I'd heard somewhere it would work. I was probably totally dreaming it!! Anyway, thanks for the tips. Cxx

  2. Fabulous roses. Great take on the challenge. Thanks for playing with us at TIOT.

  3. Wow what beauties love these gorgeous broaches. I use felt quite a lot with my cards and find that I can use Spellbinders for the thin stuff but for the thicker you really have to use the sizzix bigs . Anyway these beautiful and just perfect for our challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. Thank you for sharing.


  4. These are so pretty, your roses look perfect. I've never used felt in my crafting, but this project is very inspiring.
