Red White & Blue Flower Pins

Inspired by the Flower Brooch I did as a custom order, I decided to make some festive, patriotic versions for the 4th of July show.

I just used the flower design from the 4th of July Hair Clips for this one, and added fabric leaves.

This brooch came about a little randomly. I had just happened to make a red, white, and blue flower, not originally intending on combining them into one piece. But the three flowers were lying next to each other in a pile, awaiting pins or clips to be glued on, and I realized that they would make a pretty, elegant, patriotic brooch if arranged together into one piece.

I thought both pins looked pretty with the brown dress I happened to be wearing on the day I made them.
