I'm busily trying to make things to sell for a fair I'm doing in early June and these are three of the brooches that I've made for it.
This first one is made from a scrap from a damaged tablecloth, vintage fabric, lace and buttons. The embroidered scrap is edged in blanket stitch and the whole brooch is edged in buttonhole lace. A felt flower finishes it off.
This circular brooch is made from a selection of vintage fabrics, some vintage tatting and a button. The bow is covered in running stitch and bound in the middle using a scrap of tablecloth edge. The brooch is edged in buttonhole lace.
This brooch is made from another embroidered scrap from the same damaged tablecloth as the first brooch. This is mounted onto vintage linen and decorated with lace scraps and vintage buttons. The brooch is edged in blanket stitch.
