Day 11 Bags & Brooches

I am not having a very organised day today!  I just seem to be flitting from one project to the next.  These brooches are inspired by a tutorial given by Rebekka over at Artsy-Crafty Babe and use my favourite craft item buttons!  They are actually to go onto a blazer that I treated myself to at the weekend.  We are having a big family reunion on Saturday night so I thought I would treat myself to a new outfit.  I actually come from a huge family (Liverpool Irish background), however, over the years people have moved away and drifted apart and someone came up with the idea that we have a get together.  So on Saturday there is a coach full of Nugents heading over to Liverpool for a glass of shandy or two!  Anyhoo, I am digressing here are the broches, now as I said organisation is in short supply today so they are WIP (work in progress).

To go with my outfit obviously I will be making a bag and I am a big fan of the Union Jack theme that is popular now, hence I have begun to machine embroider over a UJ that I have transferred to fabric and I will post a picture once it is complete.

Great tutorial, I have literally thousands of buttons, so this is a really cute simple way I might me able to put them to good use! Thanks
