Mad Flower

purple felt flower brooch

I have just finished this flower brooch made from a woolen hat that M accidentally felted in the wash. It was my favourite hat from H&M but now its a slightly mad flower coursage. Its recycled too so is part of the recycle challenge. to be continued when i have time later....

lovely - really lovely...if you keep this up you'll need to buy yourself some proper brooch backs...they make all the difference

Very pretty!

The sewing on this one looks a lot tidier than the previous one.

Some suggestions as alternatives to sewing would be snap on brooch backs, or perhaps using a hot glue gun to attach the pin as well as the felt cover?

Another possibility is to use a needle to felt the two pieces together seamlessly. You can get felting needles relatively cheaply for this purpose, just google on 'needle felting'.
