1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / (Mostly) fabric brooch funtimes on: August 03, 2014 01:53:06 AM
This is my first post here for many, many years, but the urge to craft is bubbling up within me once again, so here we go.  I've recently become very fond of Daiso, the wonderful 100 yen shop (or $AUD 2.80) that rudely opened in Brisbane, Australia while I was on the other side of the planet.  Now that I'm back I'm taking full advantage, and I'm particularly fond of the little kits they sell for covering buttons (this blogger in Singapore shares my enthusiasm: http://www.theperfectximperfection.com/2012/07/diy-how-to-make-your-own-button-with.html).

However!  I am all about brooches, and it occurred to me that delicately yanking out the bit of wire that turns these into a button would mean a nice flat surface that I could use to glue on a brooch backing.  So...I did.  Quite pleased with what happened to the handful of fabric scraps I turned into brooches.  I also picked up a few novelty erasers at Daiso (they're wee Japanese crisps!) that I thought would look adorable as brooches to sass up my cardigans.  A wooden button got the brooch treatment too, and while I had the glue out I thought it would only be sensible to stick some googly eyes onto earring backs.

Not bad for a Sunday afternoon!

That's amazing!  I would have been scared of it just a little as a kid though, but then I read too much RL Stine.  Very cool indeed.

That's brilliant.  I want one!  I may have to have a go at something similar.  *this rocks*

Very sweet!  You should do shoes and a hat to go with the necklace, it would look really cute.

That's a beautiful and really touching project.  I'm sure your Grandmother is looking down on you and feeling very proud.  Smiley

Ahrg!  Don't click on the autopsy babies link if you are easily frightened.  I know.  I'm a coward.
