FELT HEART SHAPE BROOCHES

I have been playing around with felt and making some heart shape brooches - there are a set of four hearts cut a bit smaller having 4 different sizes, these then sit on top of each other. Before puting the hearts together one on top of each other I stitch beads, do blanket stitch around one or two, stitch silk ribbon flowers on them, you can stitch anything you like to emblish the hearts. I then stitch a brooch pin on the back. And there you have a lovely brooch.

Red Lady Greeting Card


I love making greeting cards. I look for an old fashion lady print that has some flowers and items that stand out from the print these items I embroider, add braid or silk ribbon to highlight the items which makes the card come alive and look 3D. This card is for a friend who has just turned 50.


Love

Red Purse


Another picture of my Red Purse "Mulin Rouge" I have stitched some seam embellishments and some silk ribbon flowers. I am a little stuck at present on what to do on the lovely large red roses on the left side bottom, I don't want to cover them up with embellishments but would like to enhance them with some stitching can I ask for some ideas from the ladies of the group.

Evening Purse











I have just finished this new Evening Purse. Its a gift for my sister-in-law who lives in Australia. I am going to visit my brother and his family in 16 days so I have made this purse for my lovely sister-in-law who is just like a sister rather and an in-law. I like to take a gift I have made when I visit as I don't have to pay to stay and this is my way of doing something for my stay.
I have added two more pictures of my purse for the ladies that want to see how the purse opens and closes. The small tab to close the purse has a small brace charm on it.

Bracelet for Leslie


Leslie was so kind and made me some beautiful faces. So I thought a gift in return would be
appropriate. I have been playing around with felt and came across a lovely book on how to made felt beads and then to incorporate them with other beads to make jewellery. So I set forth and made the felt beads and put together this bracelet for Leslie, so I hope you like it Leslie it will be in the post soon.
