No, it's not Friday, but it has been a rather long week and I thought I'd get started early with the cute. This felt starburst brooch makes me think of candy...maybe Pop Rocks. Layers of custom-printed felt have been layered atop one another and hand-sewn, lending a very charming appearance to a rather retro shape. There's a 2" bar on the back of this impossible-to-miss brooch, which is itself 5" across. Use this $15 cutie to jazz up a sweater, top, skirt, bag, or the brim of a floppy hat. Here is another pretty one; great colours.
Made by Lara of Handmade Pretties, who is a very creative woman: her shop is jammed (and I do mean jammed) with baby booties and sweaters, iPod and eyeglass cases, jewelry...everything is just darling and fun and cheerful, with plenty of whimsy thrown in for good measure.
