Bird and flower felt brooches.
With the spring flowers coming out and the welcome bits of sunny weather has wanted me to make with brighter colours. The brooch above is made from felt, with the addition of some tiny tatted flowers, with beads and a vintage button.
This bird brooch has more embroidery on it than the flower one, with blankets stitch, french knots and back-stitch. There's also another tatted flower with a bead, this one in the centre of the heart. I haven't done the tatting, it's a skill I don't have, but I found the ones in both of these brooches in a charity shop. I added the beads on both brooches.
The flower brooch and the bird brooch are now available in my Etsy shop.
