day 23

Today I've been busy felting again
Choosing colors and deciding what shape to make.
Another black one?
No : gray !
(and two others lying on the heating to fully dry)

My  PINK  RIBBON  Textile Jewel for day 23 :

a wet felted hollow brooch with sequins inside,
stitched with thin crochet cotton
and many more sequins and seed beads
(5,5 cm)

For a donation of at least

€ 15,-


this distinguished little jewel can be yours,
some stylish adornment for a little black dress perhaps ?
Or you could make it a special present for someone you love.
You just need to send me an email at
and everything that comes next will be arranged.
(Paypal is possible and easy
but mind the postage)

ALL the money will go to the Pink Ribbon fund !


There used to be a tin foundry in an special old building in Delfshaven,
part of Rotterdam (and from where the Pilgrim Fathers left for the New World)
It was fun to see the tin melting and some cup or plate emerge from the form.
But I love the colour of old pewter.

I hope to see you tomorrow
for the next Textile Jewel !

  1. Ist da ein Wickelstich dabei ? so wie man ihn für Röschen
    anwendet ?

    1. Ja, Angela ;-)
      "Bullion knot" auf Englisch, ich weiss nie im voraus was ich fúr Stiche benutzen werde ... (aber normalerweise soll man "gegen der Uhrzeiger" drehen, sonst löst sich der Faden, nur bei Seide und Rayon ist es umgekehrt ?!? Du sollst das wissen als Spinnerin haha !)
