Zip brooch

It is only 8.17 in the morning but I have already made something today!! The children were dressed, watching a bit of TV and not bickering so I popped upstairs to do a little sewing.

I bought these zips in a charity shop a few weeks ago for 20p each and had some ideas in my head...

There were more and I wish I had bought them now because I made this lovely brooch.

I thought the metal zip edge would make it look a bit 'rock-chick' but when the zip is splayed out it looks like little jewels. I Love, love, love it.

Well anything else I do or make today is a bonus because I feel like today has already been worthwhile. Happy Tuesday Jo xx
