He also delivered a lovely custom stamp that I had ordered a couple of days ago to help label my creations.
So here was the idea. I have a love for brooches and have a small but growing collection and since starting cross stitch I thought how lovely it would be to make some brooches of my own. So with all the bits and pieces on my desk I started.
I stitched this gorgeous little blue bird.
Then I covered a metal button with the aida. I removed the button back so I could glue on a brooch back.
The full button brooch measure 29mm. Sweet and perfect - you could always have room to wear more than 1!
I then took my new stamp and played around until I found the perfect way to package it.
On the reverse I added all the details to contact me and follow my crafting journey.
I am over the moon with how this has turned out, and there will be many more designs to follow. I have opened my e-bay store and these will be listed very soon here. They will be £3.75 each. A perfect completely handmade gift from start to finish.
I hope you like my brooch as much as I do.
Hope you all have a good bank holiday weekend.
Love Em x
