31 Days to Branch Out: Day 10

So, we know what tools we need to sew and how to use our machine. So..lets get started!
I have found this wonderful tutorial on how to make a flower broach.
Check out Cluck Cluck Sew for the post.

She uses a machine to stitch all of the circles together but I don't think that's necessary if you don't have a machine yet. Just use your needle and thread. You can always cut your scraps into any shape you want like pretty flowers or stars!

Now, for the back, if you don't have an actual pin back to sew onto your flower you can always just use a safety pin, no one will see it anyway.

Also you can add anything you want in the middle of it. I like the button but you can also add rhinestones or something with a strong adhesive.

Anyway, I love this broach because the circles don't have to be perfect nor do they have to be finished edges! They are so easy you can make one for each outfit! It's a great scrap buster!
