Challenge 54 Artful Times

Hello Everyone and thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts-always appreciated.

What wonderful entries for the spray challenge at Artful last time-thank you to everyone who joined us for that.

It's time for another challenge at Artful Times where Von has chosen for the theme  'Make a badge, button, brooch as long as it is fastened with a pin'  

Lots of things to chose from so hope you will join in with us.

I made a felt brooch with a bead in the center.

I cut out the shapes with a Nestabilies Die and Tim Holtz Tattered flower die sets then slightly padded the back two pieces out with some stuffing--as you would a cushion. The brooch pin is sewn on then stuck with a glue gun as well to make it secure. Sorry I forget to take a photograph of that. I add the little moon charm as extra interest.

Hope you will pop to see what Von, Wendy and Neet have made and say hello there if you have time

You could win £10 to spend with Oyster Stamps when the winner and runner-up are chosen from two challenges

These are some more brooches I made and I am hoping to give them to a charity to sell. A friend is having a coffee morning for Breast Cancer so maybe they will be suitable for that.

Love Chrissie x
