David Suchet as Agatha Christies Poirot, has long been my favourite version of the Belgian detective with a penchant for snazzy shoes and waxed moustaches.
Isn't he dapper? I have also been a fan of the adorable boutonniere he wears with his impeccably tailored suits. For a while now I have been imagining making some of these from hollow handled cutlery. I finally snagged some hollow handled knives.
Sometimes things are not what they appear to be for seemingly hollow handles may in fact be filled with plaster, rosin or cement! Needless to say that makes sawing through them rather challenging.
The detail on some of the knives is really lovely. I think this shield shape will really suit my purposes as it has a kinda masculine look about it so it just might be the next one to get the chop!
Ta da! After some sawing, filing and cleaning up here is my first little boutonniere.
tres chic, n'est pas?
A substantial brooch pin on the back. Easier for manly fingers to manage perhaps?
Pop a little damp sponge in there and the fresh flowers will stay fresh for ages. I just love this idea - do you think I can convince the blokes?
