I used two shades of organza & crimson silk. The central "moustache" is made from embroidery silk. As I was in a hurry I used an old pink button instead of beads in the very centre. I stitched some petersham to the back to then secure a brooch pin to.
I couldn't wait for Christmas though & have already given it as a present for someone as a thank you gift! ...and it was very much appreciated... :-)
Can I just encourage others to try it - it's very simple & extremely satisfying. I'm going to be making more of these beauties, experimenting with other fabrics as well.
