The beautifully pink tweed brooch
I love working with tweed as it doesn't fray that easily so you can use it in smallish pieces like I have here. It's lovely to stitch through too, there's no resistance to the needle. I've used buttonhole lace and my favourite french knots to decorate the brooch, along with some pink seed beads and a button. I've used felt for the back and attached my label and brooch pin to that. I then attached it to the brooch using running stitch.
I was seriously tempted to keep this brooch for myself, but I was strong with myself and I've put it in my Etsy stall.
I hope you have a good weekend and I'll be back on Monday.
