well apparently it's as simple as a new brooch. Well that's what's making my little people smile at the moment, and it certainly makes me smile. I have to admit to having a bit of a thing for the humble brooch and seem to always be asking for new ones for birthdays or chrissy. I think it's a great fashion accessory for kiddies as well, boys and girls alike. Boys so often miss out when it comes to special little pieces, so in our house brooches fill the void perfectly.
I had at first intended the little girl faces for hairclips but they're just a bit too large for my liking for a little girls head, however they are perfect for brooches. So much fun to make too!
And for the boys, at first it was trains but I'm having a bit of a hard time blanket stitching around all the little edges of my train design, so I have to give that one another go. However, rockets sure did hit the spot with Asher. He's very very happy with his little number, apparently it's zooming into the darkness of his tee.
I think some little alien faces might be the next attempt.
