Brooch-Pin swap

Here they all are in a metallic background..now they look better to me..I hope the girls like what I did. It was hard trying to figure out what to do when I had to add felting into making a pin..whereas I had no trouble coming up with ideas that did not included felting...lol another challenge..lol
I use red felt, a Christmas fabric, laid two different colors of red of roving and red Angelina fibers. I felted the whole thing..Than took that same Christmas fabric, metallic sheer and tulle and added these layers to make more petals for the poinsettias (over lapping the layers) and sewed it on the machine. Than I added (glued gun it) the face, gold beads around the face with over lapping it. Green was missing and when I tried to add more to it. It was just too thick so I added green ribbon over the middle part where the golden beads were. It took most of the day to do 5 of these today..but glad they are done. I knew I wanted to do a holiday scene.. I will mail them out Sat so the overseas people can enjoy wearing them now. You can not see the bottom layers at all..lol

If it is not related stay out of my blog. this is the second time you have done this to me. The first one I ignored. AI am not anymore. It is spammers like you that make it hard of people like us.
