Dahlia Flower Brooches

Here's the felt dahlia flower brooches that I had left over from the craft market the other weekend... I absolutely love them, so I was quite hurt by some miserable womens' comments as they passed. One said 'Oh what are they?' The other replied 'felt dahlia brooches, darling', 'Oh well they just look a bit weird what would you do with it?!' How rude I was standing 2ft away from them and yes they are entitled to their opinions but perhaps they could have taken them away from my stall where there were appreciative customers looking to buy these lovely brooches that mum and I were sporting on our jackets that day too!
Some people do just annoy me, if it's not your cup of tea why make a fuss, just walk on by and go buy some generic shop brooch that everyone else has! I've made many of these as gifts for friends and family, donated a few as prizes for charity raffles and never had bad feedback on them. These lovelies are still up for sale on my facebook page and I'm always making more in different colours too.
Rant over, I just wish people were a little more openminded or stayed away from things they don't understand.

That is so rude!! And unneccessery!! I am doing a craft fair in 2 weeks and I am so nervous for this type of thing, our area is not really renouned for it's understanding of handmade. I think my stuff will flop but I promised my SIL I would do it with her! eek x.

I think they are beautiful! I have tried them and mine were a big fat fail! x
