Lion Week : my crafts !!!

Here we are with this weekly appointment about my crafts related with the ideas, that you can find on Sarah's book Craft-A-Day !!!

I've worked using felt as my basic material. After cutting out the pieces forming the lion's face, this is what I had on my desk...

...then, I collected some bead (orange and blue) boxes...

...and all the other things I supposed to need for my craft...

...some colourful threads, needles, a safety pin, some filling (note that at the end, I didn't use both the filling and the white felt parts-ears and muzzle!) and 3 little buttons....
I started with the sewing of the safety pin on the back of one of the blue felt circles (yes, they are two!)...

On the other disc, I sewed the lion's mane first...

...then the face...

...and some buttons, as eyes and nose...

To sew together the two circles of the brooch, I used the blanket stitch and the beads, alternating one blue with one orange... the end of the sewing, this is what I got.....

It's a big brooch (9cm in diameter), but so light that it's a pleasure to wear it on my shirt right now!!!!
