A few weeks ago, I was inspired to crochet a couple of brooches.
I used #10 crochet thread, an old button that I had, some ribbon and some bobbles and beads.
As you can see, I was trying out ‘color schemes’. I think the five colors go together quite well.
For the rose brooch, I used #3 crochet thread and some pearl beads.
I sewed felt and a hinged pin to the back of each brooch.
I think brooches look so pretty and feminine.
I have a few more designs swirling around in my head. I am just too lazy to make these ideas a reality.
Autumn is nearly upon us, and I am looking forward to the cooler weather. Here, where I live, we won’t be feeling any cool, crisp air for a couple of months or more. However, I still like to put little things around the house in celebration of autumn.
Last year I made a little “Happy Autumn” banner/streamer and posted the template.
If you would like to make one or just to see the post click here or click on the photo. The banner/streamer is made with light-weight card stock, ribbon and laminate.
