RRP Price: £4.99

If you are familiar with the 20 to make series
then you will know how good a series they are for
a fantastic price.

Stitched Fabric Brooches is another fantastic addition to the set.
You get varying designs using different
fabrics and techniques to bring
you some unusual and beautiful additions to your wardrobe.

The different designs, colours, fabrics & looks are a good mix.
But give you a fantastic handmade look.

I love how cute they look and the designs don't clash with your outfit.
They either make you smile or give you an add on to 
set your outfit off.

The techniques you will need to use are explained at the start of the book
and all the different designs have written instructions.
I would of preferred a few how to pictures for a few of the designs
but they are all simple enough to be able to get the look yourself.


This little dog brooch is my favorite!  He is just so cute.

I love the use of different odds and ends to make
something beautiful.
I think up-cycling is fantastic when you make something
beautiful for the different bits.

For such a fantastic price you can't complain at all the different ideas you get.
I am sure with the patterns and instructions you can use them
to make hundreds of different looks.
Just using a slightly different fabric, colour or bits and bobs
you can get any of the brooches to match or contrast with your outfit.

They are also fantastic to make for family and friends.
Overall a good book with lots of different designs and ideas.

I received the book to review.
