I've enjoyed watching coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show this year. The colour and form of the exotic plants coupled with the themes and structure of the garden designs - it's all really inspirational.
I'm not very good at gardening truth be told, pansies are about as much as I can cope with (and they pretty much look after themselves!). I do think they are really pretty though, so thought I would have a go at making a felt pansy brooch for my mum for her birthday.
I choose a purple and lilac version (although it looks slightly blue in the photo) with a yellow centre and used a rich green colour for the background. I'm really pleased with the shape of the petals, and although it turned out a little larger than I had intended, I think it will look really lovely on a jacket or bag.
Can't wait to give it to her. Hope she likes it. xx
