Those flower broaches are lovely! You should consider selling them.

Oh that’s divine! And I bought a coat today … will have to have a go.

How sweet! Yes, you should sell them. Or the pattern ;-)

I’ve seen these around the web. They are so tempting! You could make one to match every jacket! Thanks for sharing!

Looks like fun. I’m going to pull out my bucket of felt scraps and have a go.

Thanks everyone, your comments much appreciated. I have been stitching again today, seem to be in a felt flower frenzy! I am going to try selling both flowers & patterns next year, & you are always welcome to visit my blog where I post instructions for vintage needlecraft projects as often as I can.
