I made a brooch using this tool



Remember this tool that I bought in April? I have tested it to make a long cord and with it I had made a flower brooch like the picture below. I twisted the long cord to form a six petals flower pattern, so as the glass beads in the same way as well. Using some scrap fabric as the base of the brooch and arrange the cord and beads on top of each other and there it become, a simple brooch. Actually, I'm not quite satisfy with the outcome, too plain, maybe I'll add in some lace or ribbon to make it more interesting. Anyhow, just let it be first, I'll think of what to do with it later.

Have you seen Noreen Crone Findlay's site - http://www.lionbrand.com/lbyarnblog7/. It is all about spool knitting and she makes her own custom spools. I made a flower brooch which was inspired by a flower book mark she had created. My brooch is very simple. It has five petals and a button in the centre.
