Monday Love: DIY flower brooche




A little project on how to make a cool flower brooche from the leftovers of a cut of jeans. I basically just cut a flower shape in 3 different sizes, sew them on to each other with a pretty couture-button as a center piece - and added a needle on the backside. Voila - this flower will bloom on your jacket or sweater all through the winter! Hope your week starts sunny and lovely and with enough space and time for some creative things!

  9. Great tutorial Martina, I'll make one for sure and pin it on my purse, I love it! I woke up to a wind storm, no power and lots of banging on the roof. It turns out that one of the guys working on our roof didn't screw the metal sheets down properly. Luckily my hubby was home and was able to fix it. The power's back and so is he, safe and sound. Hope your Monday wasn't as crazy as mine, xo Monika.

  15. GOOD MORNING MY DARLING FRIEND! I thought I had gotten so much accomplished this morning at 3:30am by seeing if I could catch up with everyone's new blog posts, but I see here that I had left to work before all the new posts went up!!! SO GOOD to see your comments; and you bet that my meeting up with Koralee was so extraordinary. FOR SURE, if..NO...WHEN I go to GErmany, WE are MEETING!!!

    I LOVE THIS PROJECT HERE...you always have the brightest and most stunning ideas and art my dear! LOVE TO YOU! Anita

  23. Great tutorial! I love flower broaches. Recently I put my jacket in the laundry and forgot to take my favourite flower off! It was sad, but I got to buy a new one, perhaps next time I'll just make it!
