Buttons lace Flower Brooch


Last weekend, I was trying to make this buttons flower brooch. The inner flower is made from linen, fabric and sew with different colors, sizes and patterns of buttons. Outside of the circle was sew with trim lace.

Looks so vintage.

1. Plain flower brooch, the basic part of the brooch.
2. Flower brooch with pokka dots pedals


3. Flower brooch with purple pedals


The more I do, the more I love zakka brown colors. Those are the colors that are use in Japanese crafts.


Pink lace fabric from a old dress reform into pink flower brooch. Added some beads and ribbons in the middle.

By the way, where can I buy resin clay? What type of shop selling it? I'm studying Malacca, do you know where I can get resin clay in Malacca? So lost when away from my hometown ~ Ipoh ^^

Thank for adding back my poupeegirl!
Have a nice day!

Thanks for the information. I will try out and see, I'm also having a hard time using silicon.

You can get the resin clay from meiwei.

Light weighted clay you can get anyway at supermarkets, such as klcc or midvalley. Melaka I don't know ler.
