Flower pin

Flower pin

Flowers is the motif I love to make my own broochs, but this time I wanted a big and elegant one to put on my jackets and also to pass through a tiny chain belt  I have that want to give a second life use. All materials I used to make it are recycled (leather pieces are a gift from by best friend that sometimes get pieces from tanneries as color cards), the brroch before giving it away I decided to put it apart in the small box together strass and stones I recycle when a collar is broken or a garment is totally worn that can not be donated or be taken to a swap party. In addition if you want to try to make your own brooch in leather you will need a leather kneedle and cotton thread. Many ideas of models can be found on the web.  My inspiration came from some pictures seen at Atelier del riciclo , big flat flowers in fabric with buttons and laces. This flower pin can give a touch of elegance to a simple t-shirt.
