Felt Peony Brooches PDF Pattern

I've added another printable PDF pattern to my shops this week: a tutorial for sewing pretty felt peony brooches.

Is it a sensible business strategy to be adding summer flower patterns to my shops in the middle of winter? Probably not, but never mind!

I wanted some simple sit-on-the-sofa-with-my-feet-up tasks to do after packing and posting the last of my pre-Christmas orders... aaaaand so I've ended up launching a bunch of entirely un-seasonal PDFs :)

The peonies are easy to sew but they do involve cutting lots of layers of petals. Don't worry if you think your cutting skills need a bit of improvement though, peony petals are a bit wobbly in real life after all, and cutting all these layers will give you lots of practice.

I always recommend investing in a pair of embroidery scissors to help you with cutting small or fiddly felt shapes - the small, narrow blades make it so much easier than using standard sewing scissors.
