I've been felting today
(the last pair and some more on commission)
But this lovely one has been ready for some time ...
now it's really time to go,
LOVE this odd shape
The PINK RIBBON Textile Jewel
for day 28 :
a wet felted (hollow) egg-shape brooch,
stitched with silk, rayon and cotton
(French knots and bullion knots)
and some seed beads.
(7 x 5 cm)
For a donation of at least
this fun shape brooch can be yours
an eye catcher on your garment.
Just send me an email to tell me you want it, at
and we'll arrange everything
(Pay Pal is possible !)
ALL the money goes to PINK RIBBON !
Hope to see you tomorrow :
only THREE more PINK RIBBON Textile Jewels to go !!!
Oh my, what exquisite bullion knots, and I find myself pondering how you start and finish, and secure those lovely threads xxBeantwoordenVerwijderen
Hi Kat, that is soooo simple (stitching on felt is so forgiving ...)Verwijderen
You start with a tiny knot and start just somewhere, pull so the knot disappears into the felt, then you go back to the same hole you came out in another direction and come out where you want to start your stitch ... voilà :-) Tying off the thread is more or less the same !
