Last week at MOPS* we made brooches. 
Here’s my attempt.  Still not sure if I like mine or not.
Very simple though when made with a hot glue gun (my new favourite crafting tool!) Being fun and easy made it the perfect activity for MOPS.  Roughly cut felt and fabric circles, add a button and a brooch pin and stick them all together with a hot glue gun.  You could also add them to a headband instead of a brooch if you were feeling inclined.
I have been collecting ideas for quick and simple crafts to make with the MOPS Mums one day over here on Pinterest.**  Any ideas to add?

For more crafting inspiration head over here to the ever inspirational collective of creative types over at our creative space.

*MOPS – Mothers Of Pre Schoolers – a lovely nurturing group who meet once a fortnight at our church giving time out and bit of rejuvenation to worn out Mums like me!
** I LOVE pinterest.  Could spend all day there!  Are you on Pinterest?  Let me know in the comments and I’ll check out your space.

    Thanks for the link to your Pinterest. I will stalk you there for sure :-) I don&#39;t have a space (not really a visual person as you may have guessed?), but I do love looking at other people&#39;s things. I love your brooches. A splash of colour and unique to boot x

    Really cute idea. I am just starting to get into Pinterest. <br />I love my glue gun, but my favourite new toy is a staple gun! Lots of fun, and a wee bit scary too! I&#39;ve been trying to make a present for Frog – I&#39;ll tell you more later…<br />xx

    These are so cute, like Sylvia, I would also add some running stitches through the layers. I like the green and yellow one especially. Mops sounds like a great group to be part of and yes Pinterest is addictive though I don&#39;t pin much but love to look at what others pin.
