This flower brooch in natural shades of green and stone features an upcycled button accent and makes a lovely eco-friendly gift for mum, an auntie, a co-worker, eco-conscious friend or for any occasion.
They are hand-crocheted with the small pieces of organic cotton left over from my kits and larger commissions, and are completed with a button upcycled from old clothing.
The brooches measure approximately 6.5cm (2¾ inches) across and are smartly presented on a recycled card ready for gift-giving. The cards are cut from old cereal packets, greetings cards, etc and will be either ‘kraft’ brown or cream in colour.
Part of my Brooches with Benefits range: as well as being super-eco friendly, £1 from the sale of this brooch will be donated to The Woodland Trust, the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity.
