Embroidered brooches

I have been trying out some motifs and brooches, using various sheer fabrics, beads, and embroidery.  This little hat started out as a piece of beading on several layers of fine and sheer fabrics, which I manipulated into a little bunch with beads, then held the outsides down with french knots.  After I had frayed out the edges carefully, I realised it looked like a hat!
