the rules for the exchange were just that the brooches had to be handmade by the participant using the medium of their choice...since i'm longing for spring, i decided to make colorful crochet flower brooches (pattern by mamachee on etsy)...
here are four of the brooches i made:
i am offering up TWO flower brooches today:
a pink one
and a blue one
each flower is hand crocheted by me using 100% cotton yarn, backed with wool felt sewn on with dmc floss finished off with a metal bar pin
how to win?
i like to keep it simple, just leave a comment (one per person, please) telling me what signals the start of SPRING to you!
contest open thru this wednesday, february 23 at 8pm est (sorry, no international shipping)
the 2 winners will be contacted immediately so please make sure you leave your email address especially if you are a 'no-reply' blogger
thanks for visiting and GOOD LUCK!
