Ok I know this isn't the greatest project ever but I thought it was cute and I just wanted to share Smiley I made this while watching the LOTR extended edition DVDs. Everyone seemed to have that leaf clasp and I was getting jealous so I wanted one. (I know I'm a Geek haha) I made this and hot glued plastic canvas on the back, added a little green felt, and glued a large safety pin to the back. Tada! Leaf clasp haha. What do you think? I will post the pattern if anyone wants it but I won't be surprised if this thread just dies. Thanks for looking Smiley
