Another use for my fabric stash

After finally getting around to making an embroidery hoop art wall I was thrilled to start using up some of my beloved fabric stash! It feels so nice to get to enjoy some of the prints I've been hording for all this time and get them out in the open! Well, when I saw this awesome DIY from Sew Tara, I figured it was right up my "let's use up those scraps" alley:

Isn't it darling? Easy too! You just need to get some fun shaped wood pieces and then mod podge on a piece of fabric! Then just glue a bar pin on the back and you're set! Quick, simple, fabric enjoying wonderfulness ready to be pinned on your jacket, bag, lapel, or (in my usual case) cardigan! Hooray! I'm officially sold and know a few other folks out there who have large enough fabric stashes to make hundreds of these (*ahem* mom...*cough cough*)! Now to find some cute wood shapes that are dying to be brooch-i-fied! Then it is time for handmade personalized brooches for all!!! What do you think? Best tutorial yet?


  1. I don't know what I would do with a million cute pins!!! Mom

  2. I couldn`t even tell that that was a bird until I went to the tutorial. It kind of looks like a misshapen ukulele in this shot... However, I do like the idea. Quick crafts are the best!

    On an unrelated note, how is your cilantro?

  3. that is lovely! I love that your so productive lately and sharing all your fun projects(:

    have an awesome day!
