Satin Flower Brooch

I’ve been trying to think of easy things to make down in the house until I can get back up to my workshop….

Our gas central heating broke down completely on Christmas Day, so we had to bring my Oil Filled radiator and my Fan heater down from the workshop to keep us warm… it’s amazing just how quickly a house cools down when you have no heating and its minus 8 degrees outside brrrrr…..  🙂

So i’m in the house, watching everyones fab youtube videos and looking for things to make, that I dont have to bring tons of stuff down from the workshop…

This Satin Flower Brooch was the ideal starter…. I had already die cut the flowers from satin material, they just needed the ends sealed off with a naked flame & assembled with a brad and a brooch pin (I burned the edges a bit lol) but it looks fine as it’s just for me

Hope you all had a fabulous christmas 🙂
