How-to: DIY Custom Flower Brooch from Fabric Scraps

DIY Flower Brooch

When you’re mixing up a lot of colors in your outfit, sometimes you need just the right accessory to pull it all together. Think of this custom flower brooch as The Dude’s rug:

…well, minus the pee.

ANYWAY! What I love about this pin design is that you can incorporate quite a few colors to make it the center of whatever outfit you have planned. I made the brooch pictured above to wear with a grey dress that has a teal sash. I wanted to pair it all up with a yellow cardigan, but it felt a little bit sloppy to me. Custom pin to the rescue!
