flower brooches

how fun are these?!? i made some fabric flower brooches like these a few years ago as favors for a baby shower i hosted for a friend. this time i used really fun fabrics in lots of combinations. you like? the tank above with the 3 flowers may look a little busy, but its really fun on.

but here’s a slightly subtler version.

for the flowers on the frame i just used packing tape and made a small loop on the back of each flower and slapped them on.

here’s a fun way to dress up a bag. each flower has a pin clasp on the back.

but i think it looks even cuter with three flowers!

here’s a close-up.

although this picture is terrible, picture how great these would be on a vintage coat, a sweet cardigan, or even a plain t-shirt.


or a tank (again).


so here’s the line-up. 1 through 10. each one is handmade of 2 to 6 different fabrics, with a covered button center and a pin closure on the back. i could also make these into magnets (oh, how cute would that be?!), or hair clips, or ponytail holders. let me know by number which ones you’re interested in, and what you’d like on the back (pin, clip, or magnet) @ 5cheneys@gmail.com
they are $5 each or 3 for $12. shipping is $2.50, and 1$ for each additional item you may want to add from here.

UPDATE: #’s 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 ARE SOLD.

    Lindsey, These are so cute! I wanted to make something similar to this for a Mothers Day gift with a group of 8-11 yr old girls I teach at church…but then I got too busy. You have definitely inspired me to do it next year!

    well, those were a hit. i guess i saw them a little too late, as they are already almost all sold. i’ll get on the next ordering spree as i’d love to get a threesome grouping. you are so creative!
