Description

A pretty lime green, heart-shaped, brooch, needle felted onto a background of felted, recycled wool fabric and enhanced with hand embroidery.

Hand-dyed wool fibres in shades of green have been needle felted onto a scrap of felted, recycled fabric taken from a skirt. A scattering of silk fibres in an orange tone have been added. The heart shape has been outlined in back stitch in green cotton thread. A filigree pattern has been stitched over the heart in fine orange thread - this design has been enhanced by a scattering of French knots in orange and lime green 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 - 4.8 cm approx.

Inspiration

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!
