A pretty heart-shaped, orangee brooch, needle felted onto a background of felted, recycled wool fabric and enhanced with hand embroidery.
Hand-dyed wool fibres in shades of orange have been needle felted onto a scrap of felted, recycled fabric taken from a skirt. A scattering of mohair fibres in a red tone have been added. The heart shape has been outlined in chain stitch in orange cotton thread. A filigree pattern has been stitched over the heart in fineorange thread - this design has been enhanced by a scattering of French knots in orange and metallic gold threads.
The brooch is stiffened by a layer of thick 'felted interfacing'. The edge has been finished in blanket stitch in the orange thread. A brooch pin is securely stitched in place. Pictured with other similar brooches listed separately.
Width - 5.3 cm approx.

The ethos of this shop is very much about the upcycling, recycling, repurposing,reusing, of textiles and other materials. I had some wool skirts, no longer needed by a family member, they felted well and this brooch is the first item to be made from the fulled (felted) fabric. I have a wonderful collection of hand-dyed fibres and blending them to create this and other items has been a pleasure. Hand embroidery has finished the design well I think!
