Can’t stop crocheting flowers….

A friend recently gave me some self-cover buttons amongst other bits and bobs yet to be used. I covered the buttons in some gorgeous fabric which another friend had given to me (yes I do have some very lovely friends!).

I covered the buttons and then decided to use some of the crocheted flowers and leaves I have been making whilst travelling to and fro for work and home.
Here’s what I did…

2To cover these buttons you need to cut a piece of fabric to the correct size (they do have a guide on the back of the packet) and then stitch with running stitch all around the fabric circle.

 
You simply lay the top of the button onto the wrong side of the fabric and pull both ends of the thread to draw up and over the button Then tie tightly and  snap the top on.31.png              4

The button is going to be the centre of the flower .

So next I took a little piece of felt to use as a base. I had once bought a crochet flower from a craft fair before but disappointedly it curls up when you wear it, I’m hoping that by fixing a piece of felt as a backing the flower and leaf will stay in place…5

and that’s it, a brooch back stitched to the back and the button stitched in place on the front. 7
Thanks for reading
back soon, love Rosie
