Flower Brooch

This is a handmade flower brooch constructed from scrap fabric, buttons and charms fastened to an alligator clip.

I don't have any process photos because I was too absorbed into this mini-project. :P However, I do plan on making another in the near future and I will provide a small tutorial!

Sorry for the dark photos, but I had forgotten my camera that day and my phone camera has no flash. Although not pictured we had the Prime Caramelized Pork Chop (long grain wild rice, smoked bacon, spiced apple chutney, aged cider sauce). The boyfriend claims it was one of the best dishes he's ever eaten!
