I'm growing a beautiful pink orchid on my kitchen windowsill, which I love. It was given to me a couple of years ago by someone very special, who, I am heartbroken to say, isn't with us anymore.
I've been thinking for sometime now that the flower shape would make a pretty brooch, along similar lines to the pansy brooch I made earlier in the year.
So yesterday, whilst I had a bit of creative quiet time, I had a go at making one:
What do you think?
I'm really pleased with the shape, although I had to physically draw round the flowers petals to get the proportions right!
I am very happy with how it turned out and think it is the perfect project for my entry in the Felt Fairy's Monthly Make Challenge. Take a look at the Flickr page here to see what the rest of Annie's super-creative followers have been making during September.
