It was my Mum's birthday earlier this week. She's headed this way soon (the countdown is on and we can't wait to see her!) and we're planning to have a belated cake when she gets here and treat her but I couldn't not send her a wee something in the post for the actual day :-)
I decided to make her a brooch with some lovely pink yarn that she sent me!
I used the Attic 24 May Rose pattern for both the rose and the leaves. Where would I be without Lucy and her easy to read and understand crochet patterns?!
Once the rose and leaves were made a sewed a small circle of felt on the back with a safety pin attached so she could pin it on. I decided not to show a photo of that as my sewing can only be described as messy!
I found a wee kraft coloured gift box that was the perfect size to keep it safe on it's journey to the UK...
And I couldn't resist adding some washi tape and bakers twine to fancy the package up a little!
Mum said she loves it and it's currently pinned to the Buzzy Bee canvas bag I also sent her (which I thought would be handy for her upcoming holiday!)
I'm linking up with Show and Tell this week.
Why not head over and see what everyone else has been making lately?
