I made these flower brooches a couple of days ago after finding out I still needed a Christmas present for my Nan. Whoops! Smiley

They're made from black leather (from an old coat), green and pink vinyl, some pretty fuschia waterproof material I had in my stash, and a couple of seed beads. 

What do you think?

These are cute!  They remind me of lilly pads.  You need a little frog on them. Smiley

thank you!  I drew up my own templates on cardstock and used them to trace out each piece on the various fabrics. I just basically freehanded some petals 'cause I was going for a whimsical, slightly imperfect effect.

thanks! That's true -- I never noticed the similarity to lily pads until now!  a frog would be super cute on there Smiley
