This was a special present I made for my mum for her birthday. The outside is peyote stitched beads and the inside is a resin dome I made a white back.
I fancied having a go at making a brooch using a large safety pin with hooks on to dangle things off. I chose silver skulls, wings and black lucite flowers.
I made this brooch as a birthday present for my mum by lightly felting space-dyed wool onto a felt disc backing. I then sewed a spiral of beads on top, which follows the line of the original wool.
I made this little blue felt brooch this morning as a birthday present for my mummy-in-law’s friend. I hope she likes it. I haven’t made any brooches for a while, so made a nice change. I love my Cuttlebug!
Some time ago now (September 2011) I was commissioned to make a floral felt brooch, but never got around to posting an image of it, So here it is.
These felt discs were originally made to be pendants for necklaces, but I decided they worked better as brooches. They are made from felt floral and circular shapes with beads, sequins and decorative stitching and measure between 4-5cm each.
I thoroughly enjoyed designing and making these floral felt brooches. I used my Cuttlebug to cut out a large selection of shapes in various colours, then spent hours layering them up in different ways before coming to a final choice. They were then embellished with embroidery thread, sequins and seed beads.
