crocheted peony brooch


As a teacher and now as a parent, I always love(d) when Teacher Appreciation Day rolled around (May 5) because I loved receiving tiny trinkets from such dear, dear students. But now as a parent, I love making these tiny trinkets of appreciation for our children's teachers.


For our son's teacher, I crocheted a fuchsia peony and added a vintage earring to the middle. And then my -aha!- moment -- I sewed fabric leaves that are actually these petals from this flower tutorial I did. Versatile. I like that!

So, Mrs. Friday -- this is in appreciation for all that you do!

The peony is lovely and my favorite color too! Beautiful, she will appreciate it as much as she is being appreciated.

This is so pretty and so beautifully wearable. It's the same colour as the peonies in my garden. I love the combination of textures you have used. I can just see it on a bag or a jacket. I bet Mrs Friday loves it!
