Look what galloped out of my mailbox just in time to jazz up my winter jacket! Stephanie of Inspired Greetings and Designs sweetly sent me a flower brooch to add to my small zebra-print clothing collection after I hosted a giveaway for her. The weather is too cold to wear the matching zebra flip-flops, but I'll still roll in my zebra-print pants, out of control.
The flower is handmade with individually cut layered petals of silky fabric. Even the back is pretty - the bottom layer is covered in black lace. Black and silver beads embellish the center to add a subtle sparkle. The fashion brooch measures approximately 2.75" across. A metal pin is attached to secure it easily to any fabric item - next spring I plan to move it from my coat to a small black handbag I take when going out dancing.
