Button Feature.....

I saw an idea for making a button brooch on Button floozies ages ago and collected some buttons for the sole purpose of having a go. Quilts and crochet got in the way and I only got around to it about two weeks ago. I decided to crochet a pink flower as the base for my brooch and i used a cotton purle and a 1.75 hook to make it.
Jewellery wire and a glue gun were also needed.
I hand stitched a brooch back to the crochet flower first. I got the brooch back from Paper and String .
I then attached the wired buttons to the large pink button and put this on top of the flower to hid all of the joins etc.
I am pretty pleased with the way it turned out and I intend to make some more as stocking fillers this year. A great way to recycle old and new buttons.
