Inspired by PatriaE's old timey Obama ribbon, I decided I had to make my own Obama pin for election day, coming out of a few years of lurking here.

I've been so impressed by the election-themed crafts; it's great to see everyone so excited and inspired no matter who they are supporting.  With a little felt, hot glue, thread, and the perfect ribbon I've been hoarding in my stash, my Obama brooch was born.

Comments (politics aside) welcome!



To give you an idea of the size, here's me wearing it:



Thanks for looking!  Now get out there and vote, ladies and gents!

Very Pretty! I think it is perfect for today!
I think it is cool because you can support your candidate without having to go all out and wear a campaign shirt(not that I have anything against campaign shirts...lol). You look awesome wearing it!
