Tutorial Tuesday - Make a Button & Wire Brooch

Sister Diane (aka Diane Gilleland) from Crafty Pod has, as per usual, another fantastic tutorial for making these wonderful wired button brooches. With simple, clear instructions and step-by-step photographs, you can choose to make either a lovely 'Shooting Star' or 'Vase of Flowers' brooch, using some of your favourite buttons. Diane's great little tutorial is here.

I was also really really pleased to find out that Diane was recently made Editor-in-Chief of Craft Magazine. I have been a long time fan of Craft magazine, since finding the early print issues. The magazine is now online only and is about the intersection of crafting, art, technology and sometimes just plain geekery, but it's always fun and it has managed to bring a large diverse craft community together, in a way that no-one has done before. Do also sign-up for the Craft monthly and daily newsletter - there is nothing better than a dose of inspiration to start the day!
