I've made these cute brooches using spent plastic gift cards as a base. All my fabrics are either recycled or leftover scraps saved for me by stitchy friends. My threads are also leftovers collected by the ladies of Airedale branch of The Embroider's Guild.
Pieced by hand and embroidered with cretan and blanket stitches, stuffed to make a pad and finished with a button in the centre.
4cm square, this one is pieced in tiny floral prints in blue and white, great on your lapel or shirt.
