Spring is coming! and what a better way to welcome it than by making a super cute flower brooch, this is all you need:

Ingredients

All you need

  • Scissors

Preparation

  2. Thick felt circle

  3. Take the piece of thin felt and cut plenty of little circles for the petals (I used the bottom of the thread as a guide), for this brooch I cut 24 circles.
  4. Thin felt circles

  5. Take one of the small circles and fold it in half, then stitch it to the edge of the big felt circle. One stitch would be enough.
  6. Stich circle

  7. Take another circle and repeat the same, overlaying it slightly, and keep going all the way round the big circle.
  8. Felt circlesFirst row

Recycled literature

How great are not books? I made this prototype a while ago, and it works great! Sure, the screws are a bit rude, but hey it was my first go at it. I love the fact that you can take whatever, and make it into something totally else. This particular piece of literature is now waiting to hold our keys in the entrance.

Wall decals have become hugely popular lately. Here is our latest addition from BLIK, the always seasonal Space Invaders. The cool thing with these is the painless removal option if you ever would get tired with them. Who wouldn’t love to see quirky aliens when they wake up?
