September's free project for my monthly pattern newsletter subscribers is going to be a tutorial for sewing cute little felt teacup brooches!

Those of you who've been reading my blog for a long time may recognise these brooches, as I used to sell them in my Etsy shop years ago.

I took that teacup-brooches-in-a-teacup photo during my Crafting 365 project to do something crafty every day for a year and share a photo of it here on my blog and on Flickr (remember Flickr??). It ended up representing Etsy in British Vogue's "Secret Address Book", which is easily the fanciest place one of my photos has ever been featured.

(I can't believe that was almost ten years ago, my goodness.  How time flies when you're busy making stuff out of felt!)

I've stitched lots of these little teacup brooches over the years...

... and some of them weren't even pink!

I always loved making them and I hope you guys will love them too. Click here to subscribe then look out for the email in your inboxes later this month.

September's newsletter will also include the link to August's free project: a tutorial for making some pretty floral hoop art.
