Gripstand, Tape Measures and Old Bling

One of my favourite brooches is a yellow tape measure brooch handmade & gifted by Trudie. I love wearing it & people always ask me about it. I'd been thinking it would be handy to have one in another colour, so after finding some supplies this is what I came up with. I'm turning into a real Martha Stewart!

Wee tapestry brooch/pendant

Yep more beads. I love those old clasps.

  7. I love that the tape measure brooch hasn't lost its appeal and you love the one I made you. Better still is that you're getting your Martha on and getting crafty....I like the birdie one. I saw badly want a gripstand bowl a big one.....patience Trudie. Oh and you know I love me some Erstwilder and I'm collection is slowly growing.
