Bits, bobs and brooches

Hi folks and thank you for popping in.
This week I have been using up some leftovers and making some small projects.
They will probably be going towards a charity craft sale later in the year.
I like the idea of making a box of stuff that can be added to
when in need of a "small fix" of sewing, between the bigger projects.
 I used to make things for the school fair but our primary school days are now well and truly over!
First up were these brooches..

I had a shape in mind and hunted for a tutorial but couldn't find the right one, so after a bit of playing around and a few false starts these were the result. Has anyone else found a good fabric flower tutorial that I may have missed?
It's early days yet and there is a bit more experimenting to do shape wise..

The very first one was made to put on Mum's birthday present...

Next up were a pile of little 4" pockets ready to be made into lavender bags.
Most of the material is left over baby quilt fabric.  

And finally some little 4"(ish!) pincushions.. 

with recycled denim on the reverse and a little tab for decoration. The cute tab was tape given to me by a sewing friend so I'm not sure of the source, sorry.

 If anyone has any other ideas for craft sale makes,  I'd be grateful for some tips?
I hope you have a good week.
