My Creative Space - Cute as a button

My projects seem to be getting smaller and smaller, but I think this is as small as I can get with applique - brooches about 3.5cm wide.

I love that I can use up scraps of fabric, and that after the applique I can do the rest while I'm sitting on the sofa.

Covered buttons have always fascinated me, and that's what I wanted them to look like, so I have covered a plastic circle with some wadding and the applique, and backed it with felt and a pin. I also have my eye on some covered-button hair ties (by Songbird Designs) on FeltAid...

The third photo is another 'little' project that is coming together for the Amy Butler competition this weekend, details here if you haven't seen them already.
