Creative space - brooch making

Ive been busy making my brooch for the brooch swap over here.

It's my first time making brooches so I hope the recipient will like them. I got someone who is SUPER creative... gah- the pressure.
I used thrifted/vintagey type fabric, buttons and doilies.

This one is on a large self cover button....what an experience that was!

and this one is a whole lot of folding...and hot gluing ...and I have the burn marks to prove it.

These are lovely. It's so nerve wracking trying to make for others, isn't it? I'm sure she'll love it. K

Oh they are so great! I agree about the angst of making for someone supercrafty!! I knitted a few brooches recently, to sell, but I still cringe when someone loves and buys them!!!...will they really love it when they get home??
I am attempting Covered Buttons this weekend for the first time in about 40 years..yikes, hope it's easy!
