WIP IT 1 - Felt Dahlia Broch



Busting through those WIP projects this week for what I am calling WIP it (I know, genius right?), I'm going to be going hell for leather and applying my stubborn Taurean streak to the numerous unfinished projects I have littering my apartment.

Todays finished article: the Felt Dahlia brooch, I've had these pieces all cut out since November, I'm such a slacker I know.

Check out the link to make your own, link 2 is some notes to make the process easier, I found using fabric glue was not successful but I wizzed through with a glue gun and didn't need to leave my petals overnight to dry so it was even quicker, allowing me to get cracking with another WIP project I've put off since September this time, yep I'm going Chronologically (at least for today anyway!)

Tomorrow some offensively worded Cross stitch, be prepared to look through your fingers folks as I become a sweary Mary, sorry Mum sorry Nanny Gray! (Yep I call my Grandma Nanny, I'm English what did you expect!)
