Description

A pretty garden border with lupins and dahlias, in shades of yellow and orange, all in miniature on a brooch.

Sky blue wool fibers have been felted to a background of kunin felt (produced from recycled plastic bottles. Textured, hand-dyed wool tops, some of them with lovely curls, have been felted in clumps to represent the planting. Stitching in fine cotton has been added to the sky to 'stabilise' the felting. Simple embroidery stitches, in crewel, tapestry and knitting wools, have been used to create more foliage and the pretty flowers.

The brooch is edged with blanket stitch using thread to match the embroidered design and is backed with a second layer of kunin felt. A brooch pin is securely stitched in place.

Height: 6 cm approx
