2. Place first flower on the biggest felt circle and sew it together in the centre.

3. Top with another (smaller) circle and second yarn flower and sew together through all layers. You can add more layers of felt or yarn, it is up to you. The last layer does not have to be felt.

4. Finish the brooch with a button or bead, putting the thread through all the layers to the bottom and connect the brooch fastening.

NOTES

I made those brooches during Friday’s textile class I attend that is run by Lorraine & Reba, more ideas can be found here.

If you can’t get ready felt you can always make your own (from the wool) – step by step tutorial coming soon.

My husband absolutely hates those brooches, he told me they look like a pile of rubbish.
