Creative Whims

Having treated myself to a lovely brand new embellishing machine in August I decided it was time to get creative and put it to use.

I found some felt backgrounds that I had made previously and decided to embellish some more fibres onto them. Out of the finished pieces of fabric I made two brooche's, one for my sister and one for a friend

This is the 'Sea Witch' brooch, she is just lacking her wand!

This brooch has more of an autumn feel to her, I haven't come up with her name yet!

Once the shapes were cut out beads and hand stitching were applied along with the face, hands and feet. Then the backing and clasps were attached.

Great fun to do and I've got enough fabric to make another couple!!
