New in my Etsy shop - a quartet of layered felt flower brooches:
All the flowers are made up of lots of individual hand-cut petals, sewn together to make large corsages and topped with a cluster of seed beads. The larger flowers are a massive 5 inches (12.5 cms) across.
The orange and purple flowers are made from synthetic craft felt...
... and the pink and turquoise flowers are made from a couple of sheets of super thick handmade felt I bought last year. I didn't buy much of the handmade felt, so there's only one of each flower available.
The texture of the felt is gorgeous, and it creates a completely different look from the standard craft felt.
My favourite is definitely the turquoise flower - I'm really pleased with how nice the silver beads look against the bright turquoise blue.
Turquoise is one of my favourite colours. I probably use it too often but it's so hard not to be drawn to the colours I love when crafting and buying supplies!
