Earlier this week, I was challenged by my co-workers to make something colorful to wear. Tomorrow is color week, and each grade level is to wear a certain color. The staff members got to choose from what's left - purple and black. I was fine with either one, but more people weren't enthusiastic about the color choices. So it was decided that we wear something multi-colored.
The original plan was to use ribbon. But this challenge made me think of the Hana-Ami Flower Loom by Clover. I picked 5 colors of yarn, then started playing. After the flower is done, which was so easy and quick to make by the way, I adhered a large rhinestone in the middle. This is what I came up with:
And because this is a quick project, I just used whatever was available. Safety pins worked just fine.
Now these brooches can be used as an embellishment on a sweater, shawl, hat, purse and more. The best part, it can go with any color.
I'm glad my co-workers volun-told me to do this. I sure had fun and it was a nice way to end an awesome Valentines Day.
Have a great weekend, dear reader... 'til next blog!
