Being Crafty

I have just finished making a flower brooch (here doubled as a fascinator, as it's just done up round a head band) Just wanted to share it with you guys as I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. Perfect to brighten up any outfit and add a summery feel, and even better, super easy to make.
All you need is some felt and a brooch back, I also added some materials and some beads to add more interest.

Simply cut out four circles of equal size, just makes sure not to make it too big, as the bigger it is the more unstable it will be.

use one circle as the base, which the brooch back will be sewn onto.

Fold the other circles in half and then in half again, to make the petals, and then sew them onto the base.

 Voila! It's really that easy. I just sewed on the other fabric on to each felt circle before hand, as i thought it would be nice to have some added colour inside.
