Mollie Makes fruity brooches

Earlier this year, I was approached by Mollie Makes to design two fruity brooches, based on my existing designs (pineapple necklace and watermelon earrings), for the free kit in issue 56 of the magazine. Mollie Makes' circulation is around 40,000 (according to their publishing house's website) so I was delighted to think of the kits going into all of these new homes.

The kit included four pieces of faux leather, templates, brooch backs and cute little gems - making the brooches super simple to create. This project was great fun to work on!

It's been wonderful to see what you've been coming up with! Thanks to all who have posted pictures using the hashtags #molliemakes and #molliemakers

And finally, if you were wondering what to do with your leftover bits of faux leather, fear not! Emma Mitchell's nine year old daughter (!) has come up with two lovely ideas - a strawberry and this lovely bouquet of flowers wrapped in gold faux leather. Wonderful, right?
