Fresh From the Button Bouquet Brooch Press...

i enjoyed making the button bouquet brooch for Claire that i decided i was going to make some for the sale...which is what i spent ,y time doing today....until i ran out of brooch backs grrrrrrr!!! What do you think...I'm not sure which one i like the most...i Will say that i am little bit wary of these as i have seen similar brooches on folksy, but i think mine are different enough as the ones i have seen are not on felt and are like buttons on top each other (maybe they are glues) I'm not sure. either way i think I'm safe with these ones.
thank you for you comments on the things i made for the swap. its my first swap and i was a bit worried that i hadn't done it 'right'.
The craft fair plans are going well. all of the stalls are now gone!!! now i just need to give myself a headache over the table plan!! arth has said he will help me, which i am very grateful for!! we are going to go to Bristol on Saturday to see his folks, Alison said she would take me to ikea!! which will hopefully mean that the button storage problem solved....but will probably lead to a fabric storage problem after i buy lots of pretty fabric from there!!!
Right...I'm off to make some lunch/tea both Arthur and i have work at 5!! day off tomorrow tho'.....and if it looks OK....I'm going to post a picture of my new hair....that's right I'm going to put a face all of these ramblings you have soo kindly been reading!!
Take Care


  1. Cute brooches:) I really love the bottom left one. Oh, I can't wait to see your hair:)

  2. I thin the bottom left is my favorite as loks like it has a touch of yellowish gold.

  3. I think is what i ment to say.and looks too.not lokslol Im typing way to fast on my lunch break haha.

  4. I like the green one, I have a thing about green at the moment. Be careful in ikea, they do have gorgeous fabric in there at the moment!

  5. They all look great - loving the blue one!

    Have fun in Ikea.....

  6. Love the brooches Bex, my favourite is the pink one (bottom centre). Glad to hear the plans are coming together for your craft fair.
    Enjoy Ikea.
    Take care.

  7. I'm so glad you have all the stalls taken for the fair, I feel really awful that I didn't do it but I just couldn't have got enough stuff together :(

    I think I like the bluey button brooch the best, but they are all lovely.

    Can't wait to put a face to the name!
