And now for something a little bit different ......

Today I have something a little bit different to show you ! I made myself a pin to wear to the jubilee party I went to.

I had a lovely hour wandering around my local haberdashery ooh-ing and ahh-ing at all the pretty things and came out with a bag full of goodies and a head buzzing with ideas !

I knew I wanted to create a corsage style brooch for my dress and to begin with I had one big felt flower in the middle but it was just too chunky and heavy so I opted instead for these red rolled roses with a bling centre !

So the layers I used are, from bottom up, blue tulle, super soft feather trim and it's topped off with the felt rolled roses.

The kids had great fun playing with the tulle (I brought metres of red, white and blue tulle !) and went wild with the feather trim !

Since it is the 1st time I tried anything like this I am really quite pleased with the yummy girliness of it - I think it would look fab on a hair band too :)

Thanks for taking a look x
