Fabric frame brooches

I've been making these brooches for the past few weeks with a view to maybe adding them to our market stall in the new year, but decided to run a couple off as extra Christmas gifts for mum and Aunty Ellie. I won't go into too many boring details about how I made these, but I'm refining the process and am starting to improve the look of them (particularly the back view). I picked the African fabric for mum (not really my style, but for reasons stated in the 'Buckwheat heat bags' post) and a crafty quilting fabric for Ellie ('cause she's an eclectic soul at heart). I'm planning on making more with some of the American and Japanese craft fabrics I bought in Tokyo last month. Lots of fun to make and I think they're starting to look quite pretty! Yay!
