Made some simple decorative ribbon brooches for winter! I recently bought a bunch of cheap wool cardigans in preparation for cold, but they were all really plain and in boring colours (i.e. dark brown, navy, black…. why do so many people wear black in winter?!?!?!) Anyway the lack of bright (over)saturated colours made me feel a bit depressed, it’s bad enough that it’s cold and windy so why make it worse by wearing the dullest darkest colours in winter??? So I made a bunch of ribbon brooches in bright colours that I could stick on to anything (coats, jackets, skirts, hairbands, bags etc… anything!) Pretty simple and cute I think
