I just recently bought 100 (now 99!) brooch backs and decided to make a brooch with a snowflake on since I work at Bronners (the largest Christmas store in the world!)  I put peoples names and dates and whatever on ornaments and I must say, as jobs go, it's pretty damn good!
Well, Leah falls down to earth when the only person that comments is the one chick with Aspergers who can't help herself and she says 'Whoa, what a huge pin!  Could it get any bigger?'!!   Embarrassed  Ummmm, thanks.....

So, here's the huge pin/brooch.  And my brooch in action with the big guy!
The beginning....lots of swearing as metallic thread is a bitch












And me with the big guy!




And if I'm sideways then I apologise......you'll just have to use your imagination as it comes out fine on flickr.  Oh and please check out my sexy red vest! Tongue

hey, i think your broach is really cool! when you said someone mentioned it was huge, i was expecting HUGE, but this isn't abnormally big....dont be put off!!

i love that you made something really festive and can wear it to work. where is Bronners? and how do i get a job with santa?  Cheesy

oooh what are you gonna do with the other 99 backs? you should def do a miniture of one of your x-rated patterns, that'd be amazing  Wink

Thanks so much for your kind words!! Cheesy  Bronners is the largest Christmas store in the world and is located in Michigan.  It's well worth a trip if you're ever nearby.  Even the most hard hearted bah humbugs enjoy it!  It's huuuuuge!

And good idea about the other 99 backs.  I just need to think of something that small to put on a brooch?  Ex hubbies appendage?!! Tongue

LOL that's awesome!  there are a few sites out there with a wealth of what my friend calls "tiny stitchies" little patterns just the size for a brooch.  if you like you can PM me for the links, because I'm not sure how the linking stuff works on craftster anymore...

I would be interested in those too Cheesy. Maybe you can post them on the shared pattern thread and then link us to that?
