Tiny Flowers

I finished restocking my moustache disguises this week...... lots of fun to wear, but a bit boring to sew (black and brown are not the most exciting colours).

So after I finished them I quite deliberately picked a sweet, pretty, cheerful project to brighten up my workbox... forget-me-nots:
Those will become brooches like this one, and maybe a hairband or two? (what do you think?)

All those flowers were cut out by hand with a small pair of scissors (no punches or mechanized cutters). It takes a while but it's a lovely relaxing task and only becomes a problem when you're clumsy like me and knock them all onto the floor (oops). I love adding all the stitched details too and am looking forward to finishing these this afternoon...

So pretty! I also like to use plain old scissors for cutting out small shapes. Sometimes it's a bit of a mountain to climb, but so satisfying in the end.

I prefer to really get a feel for what I'm creating.

I think cutting things by hand and handsewing them makes them so much more special and bespoke. The forget me not brooches are really pretty. Would look lovely on a tweed jacket :-)

Adorable, Lupin! You have such a knack for packing the cute into a tiny package.
