On my desk this week you will see the first wee felt brooch I made with the extra thick felt I had just got last week. I cut the flower shape out with an X cut die and the circle with a Nesties die - they didn't cut all the way through, but it was easy enough to finish with the scissors. I added a few wee purple beads round the outside and some teal coloured shimmery stitches round the edge of the circle. I finished it off with a wooden button in the middle.
You will also notice some thick perle cotton type thread - I saw this pack of lots of different colours in a local shop the other day and thought it might come in useful for something? - Maybe do for threading through buttons, etc - if I can't find a use for it, I can always take it into school!
Finally, the lovely paper is a Nitwits set 'Cottage Charm' that came with the Simply Homemade magazine. I love Nitwits, but I'm never that happy with how they turn out on my printer - I prefer to buy them if I can. I intend to make a wedding card and so I have been looking to see what else I can match up with the papers, that would be suitable for a wedding card.
Join up to Julia's blog here - so we can have a wee peek at what you're doing this week on WOYWW!
