Finally, a use for some of the vintage fabric I collect... flower brooches. They measure about 3 or so inches across and would look sweet on a jacket lapel or closing the neck of a blouse. They could also be used to add flourish to a hat, totebag, curtains, cushions or anything else your imagination can dream up.
They are something that I started playing with some months ago, when I was trying to decide what to sell at this year's Great Glebe Garage Sale. They take a fair amount of work to make and I'm not sure that they are the right match for the bargain hunters who turn out on mass for this annual sale. Perhaps they belong in a craft shop.
What do you think? Would you wear one?
