I always save tiny scraps of fabric I like in hope that I will come up with an idea on how to use them.Well here it is. :)
If you are the same and have some pretty scraps of fabric saved up,you have everything you need to make these cute brooches.
Go crazy with the pattens,shapes and colors. :) Its fun and addictive.

You will need:
-scraps of fabric you like
-needle and thread
-scissors
-cotton wool
-brooch pins or safety pins

Step1
Cut three circles from your fabric of choice.And cut a circle from the fabric scrap with the pattern.I used an unvanted cupcake patterned shirt and an old pajama bottom for the patterns. :)

Step2
Sew the patterned fabric on the smallest circle.I used a blanket stitch.

Step3
Now sew it on the middle sized circle.I used up a piece of a spider web patterned bandanna.

Step4
This is the last circle now,the base.Put a layer of cotton wool between the two circles of fabric.This will give the brooch a fuller look.

Step5
Now you just need to sew or glue your brooch pin on the other size and your done!

Optional
If you don't have a brooch base like I did,just use a safety pin instead.Cut a piece of felt a sew it over the safety pin.
