Fabric embroidered brooches



Sorting through my ever growing stash of fabric, ribbons and other stuff I dug out a box full of fabric embroidered brooches I have never shown here.

As you already know I am nuts about fabric accessories. I also have a soft spot for brooches, especially embroidered ones. As you will notice yourselves, they all feature flowers since I find Mother Nature remarkably inspiring.

French knots (Remember what I told you about these?)


Up-close and personal...





Flower arrangements purely romantic. You can guess the mood I was in.




This is actually a cushion for the rocking chair of Mr. Augustus the mouse (it's a long story...).



I hope you enjoyed the display!

I am sure Mr Augustus loves that cushion. Very pretty colours on these brooches.

Wow, you have so much nice work here!! I love them so much. It's so nice to have on on jeans like you did in the first picture!

Thank you all on the sweet comments!
Ophelia: the fist of the brooches was photographed a long time ago and at that time I couldn't find better background, so I used my jeans for the purpose!

Love the look of the brooch against denim! I totally agree with Papgena Made It, these would make a beautiful Christmas gift. Your embroidery style would also look wonderful as a large covered button, just spectacular.

Thanks KJ. I've also made some embroidered buttons but it'll require some more digging :)
