hi girls! i'm a day late, i know!
gather some happy grandma-ish brooches from yard sales or flea markets or the trusty goodwill.
pop the backs off.
create a little arrangement that is pleasing to your eye.
you'll need a little fabric for backing, i chose a vintage print.
cut the backing that will work for your arrangement. in fact, cut two. one for the front and one for the back. i wanted a little weight with mine, so i sandwiched a piece of paper in between and sewed them together.
then i went to town stitching and went around and around using different stitch widths.
i used the amazing crop-o-dile to punch holes and add eyelets.
then i got out the big guns - E6000 (holy cow is it good glue.) and glued the arrangement right on to the fabric backing.
waiting for the glue to dry.
i used an old chain from a garage sale necklace.
