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.
After buying lots of super, bright and cute buttons over the past month I finally had a chance to sit down and play with them!
Here are two lovely felt angel decorations I’ve just finished as a commission. Fun, but fiddly.
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!
I made this necklace for myself a while ago now, but thought I’d post a picture of it. The felt beads are a bit fiddly to make, but worth it!
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These felt discs were originally made to be pendants for necklaces, but I decided they worked better as brooches.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 was never completely happy with my first attempt at making felt necklaces, so I decided to work on them some more. I attached the discs to flower shaped backgrounds and used ribbons to thread them onto the necklace cords. I also added a few wooden beads too. Much better!
Here’s the necklace I made my mum for Christmas. The pendant part is made from a metal washer wrapped in black netting, textured wool and beads. The cord part has wooden beads and felt beads.
My friend Ali asked me to make her some felt Christmas tree decorations, so I made myself some too! I’m most pleased with how they came out (and so was Ali).
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.
