Fun Flowers fabric brooch

On Saturday I needed something blue to go with my red and white outfit (you recall that we went to a Red White and Blue themed Street Party Evening), so I decided to make myself a blue fabric brooch.  


I cut up a Dark blue pillow case, and using the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die, cut out two sets of flowers.
I then glued and glittered the edges of the flowers so that they wouldn't fray.
I used a large pearl brad for the flower centre and to hold the flower together.
Then stuck a brooch back on the reverse.
It looked great!!
