As promised, I've got a leafy tutorial to share with you guys today: how to make a brooch decorated with a trio of felt leaves.

These brooches are a slightly updated version of a design I used to sell in my shop years ago. They're quite quick and easy to make but I think they look rather stylish!


I've sewn my brooches in spring greens, but you could use orange/red/yellow on a brown background to make an autumnal version. Here's a crafty flashback to some I made many moons ago:
