I may have bought a few too many cute vintage ornaments and decorations at the thrift stores these past few years.  My house has reached its limit for kitschy goodness, but I still have room on my coats and sweaters!  These poor little souls were doomed to be stuck in a box for the season until I made some festive fabric flower brooches for them to live on.  Now they get to venture out into the world and spread a little holiday cheer.  Smiley

This one has a really roly poly tummy.


I wish I had eyelashes like this!


A punky flannel flower to go with my hot pink angel with new coordinating glittered wings.


I made the flower bases using the templates and instructions provided at the wisecraft blog:

Thanks for looking!

Thank you.  I'm trying to hold out until December 1 to wear them, only a few more days!  My husband thinks they are a little too "whimsical", but if you can't wear silly stuff around the holidays, when can you?

I hope some of you raid your ornament stashes and make some, too.  I'd love to see what combinations Craftsters come up with.  Smiley
