I have been a busy little bee making lots of crafty goodies for Craft 2.0 just take a look at the mess I have made...
Anyway I thought I would share this pattern for a cute little cupcake brooch with you. This is a great project to use all the left over bits and pieces so gather up all your felt scraps and lets begin.....I apologise for the slightly dubious photos in advance!
|2 brooches in the making.|
|Dubious photo #1!!|
Next just lay all the pieces onto the background to see where they fit.
And while you still have white floss threaded whip stitch the top of the icing onto the top layer of the background.
Then using 2 strands of brown floss whip stitch the cupcake to the background (I did have a photo of this but accidently deleted it!)
Next using 2 strands of blue floss (or whatever colour you have chosen) whip stitch the wrapper to the background around the outside of it.
Next add the cherry with red thread - I have attached it using a cross stitch in the middle.
Then lay the bottom piece underneath the top one and using a running stitch sew the whole way around the brooch. Don't worry about all the stitches being evenly spaced or the same size - random is just fabulous!
Then just add a brooch back - I like to use a contrasting thread (brown again).
If you don't have a brooch back a safety pin will work just nicely.
And there you have it a cute wee brooch!
Try making a bird or a mushroom or a hedgehog brooch too.
I would love to see what fabulous creations you come up with using this pattern.
Send me a photo and I will add it to my photo gallery - leave me a comment and I will contact you with the details.
