My favourite hobby is crafting, now wasn't that a surprise lol! Like to dabble, making things other than cards and at the mo, my favourite is making brooches. Can make them just how I want them to look like and can match them to my outfits, ooo, have to make loads more then! So far I have made nine different ones, some for my friends.

I used felt with a percentage of wool in it. Flower dies used Tim Holtz big dies and the centre flower used a marianne spiral flower die. The back flower cut I used very fine type of burlap and to stop the edges fraying I used glue on the back of the petal edges to prevent this, dries clear.  Took a piece of lace, threaded the green twine through the holes along the top pulled together and tied in a bow. Made the pin and attached it and the brooch back pin before I glued it all together. Love this one, has a country vintage feel to it and looks like I will have to make another the same so I won't be sorry when its gone to a good home!
