Inspired by the embellishment I created on the duct tape notebook cover, I decided
to make the fun decoration into a brooch. Easy peasy. Here goes!
First, you'll want to drill 4 holes into a bottlecap. Top, bottom, both sides.
Next, make a yo-yo.
I used a 6" circle, which made a yo-yo that ended up being almost 2 3/4" across.
Then, cut a strip of fabric that is about 1 1/2" to 2" wide & 14" long. Sew along the bottom & gather it all together in a circle. (It could be longer or shorter, depending on how "ruffly" you want your circle.)
Now, cut a circle from felt & sew on a pin.
You should now have 4 pieces that will come together to make the brooch.
Stack the bottlecap, yo-yo & circular ruffle together & sew them up using the holes
in the bottlecap.
And lastly, stitch the felt piece on the back.
