Groovie Flower Power pin/brooch

Made by cutting fabric from a template and layering and folding the different pieces together.  I secured the pieces by machine stitching the center with an "X" pattern.   I snipped through some of the petals to create more dimension before rolling in the palms of my hands to create fraying effect and height to the embellishment.  I added a vintage button with yarn in the center.

Add a felt square to the back and safety pin to make a brooch or pin to attach to purses, totes, or clothing.

Add a magnet with hot glue to the back to make one very hip refrig magnet.

This would be a great project to use repurposed fabric.  You'll think twice before you throw an old shirt out now!!!

 

Easy and quick to make!!!
