A Little Cracker Of A Brooch

I had one of those crappy tape measures you get from Christmas crackers kicking about in my sewing box, just generally getting in the way so I decided to make a rosette brooch from the little bugger, and here it is.  You basically fold it over and over on itself and sew through all the layers, add a button to hide all the terrible stab stitching you've done, glue on a brooch finding and Bob's your uncle!

Linking up with Handmade Thursday over on White Lily Green
