Small red flower brooch

Tuesday, 10 February 2009

I just made this red flower brooch using several layers of soft felt and golden or honey-colored glass beads. And let me confess that I've always admired people who can spend hours putting stitch after stitch, bead after bead. This is my little attempt in that direction. However, the brooch is rather a small for a felt brooch - 4cm (about 1.1/2 inches) in diameter. Would someone wear it? Does size matter? What do you think?


  1. I think a petite pin is perfect for a coat lapel. :) Very pretty.

  2. It would be fine on a label or lovely on a hat - very nice. And beads can be addictive!

  3. Great to know that a small brooch is OK! Now I wonder why I wasn't sure.
