Thought you might like to see a sneek peak of my new cloud brooches. I made these recently but was too busy to add them to my Folksy Shop before the Charity Chic fair. They got a lot of attention and I made a few sales over the three days…here are the left over which will be going into my shop this week.
Each brooch is made with 7 buttons, all vintage, stitched onto leather which is then cut to follow the cloud shape formed by the buttons. I then cut another shape exactly the same for the back and sew a nickle brooch pin to this. The back and front are then placed together so that I can punch holes all the way around the edge. I then stitch the front and back together with white embroidery thread and the brooch is complete.
They’ll be available in my Folksy Shop soon. I’m also going to be making some in different colours, as well as different shapes – so just random assortments. They make such lovely brooches.
