so i am in love with my new laminator and simply cannot stop laminating things! these brooches are addictive to make because they super quick and easy. and the combinations are ENDLESS.

i had an old Batman comic that was just dying to be something cute. I loved the colors! so, i stacked and sewed circles of the laminated comic art and purple satin (burned at the edges to prevent nasty fraying.) I added the pin back and finished the bloom with some sparkly beads.

this is laminated paper from an old children's book of Fairy Tales and some eco felt!

i used some more Batman comic art for this as well as an old denim patch. its flat, but still cute!

group shot!

C&C please! thanks for looking! Smiley

I like the purple one best, the singeing of the fabric has given a lovely 3d effect.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I recieved some hair clip flowers in a swap from SLounsbury. She made them out of felt, 3 layers and used a button for the flower centre. I think she used clear nail polish to seal/curl the edges and the sewed/glued it to a gator hair clip. They are just beautiful and I will be making more! Nice idea to use comics and satin ribon.

That purple flower is seriously cool. Purple is my favorite color, so I'm a bit partial Smiley

I make things. I write things. You should look at them and read them.
