Bird Liberty print William Morris strawberry thief fabric button brooch

Description

This fabric brooch features an iconic William Morris design on sumptuous Liberty’s Tana Lawn fabric (100% soft cotton), that is updated with a fresh modern colour palette! Designed by Morris himself and originally produced in 1883 - Strawberry thief – is one of William Morris’ most famous designs.

I have chosen a section of this fabric featuring a naughty Thrush who has just stolen a strawberry (and gobbled it!). The green tinted thrush stands on a dark blue background, surrounded by foliage and flowers in blues and greens.

Using this fabric, I've created a 28mm diameter fabric covered flat backed button with a layer of calico which gives the button a subtle dome, then glued a wooden birch plywood disc into the back of the button. I have hand painted the plywood back with a coordinating blue glitter paint - it just sparkles when moved! I then added a stainless steel brooch back that has a safety catch.

This lovely brooch measures just under 3cm in diameter and would be a great addition to your favourite jacket, summer jumper or a bag!

This lovely unique pendant will come to you safe and carefully packaged in a UK Made eco-friendly recycled kraft card jewellery box - perfect for gifting to that Pre-Raphaelite fan, nature lover, bird watcher or Liberty’s of London fan (or as a treat for yourself!)

Inspiration

This is William Morris' most famous design! He based the pattern and name on the thrushes which frequently stole the strawberries in the kitchen garden of his countryside home, Kelmscott Manor, in Gloucestershire. Despite the fact that this design was one of the most expensive printed furnishings available from Morris & Co., (due to the particular printing method employed) it became a firm favourite with clients.
