Brooch Swap

This is a brooch I have been working on recently.

 


We Bloom Here Blog hosted a brooch swap.  I was paired with a Californian.  She made me this:








I made her this:
 It is made from 100% wool felt, plant dyed embellished with beads and embroidery.

 I love swaps and the next one I am participating in is a Christmas ornament swap through Natural Suburbia.

  1. Oh the heart brooch is so pretty! Your californian friend must have been delighted. For some reason my laptop isn't letting me see the brooch you were sent though. I participated in the brooch swap too but haven't posted pictures on my blog yet. I'd better get onto it!

    1. Thanks! I did have fun playing with colors. I cut out a lot of heart shapes in varying sizes and then mixed and matched.
      The strawberry swap you were in looked great!

    1. Thanks Louise. I had fun with the color combining. Love the Christmas items you have been working on, like the hearts with the fabric messages.

  4. Both brooches are lovely. Funny that you both did hearts. And me (and hubby) have both discovered that we have both been spelling brooch wrong all our lives. (We thought it was broach, but have looked it up and we are wrong.) Educational.

    1. Yes, it is interesting that we both did hearts from the opposite coasts.

      Brooch is one of those words that proves phonetics wrong.

  5. Both are lovely, sweet pieces. The one with the beading looks like it took a lot of time and talent. :)

  6. I think that you can't have to many brooches! That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it haha. The two brooches are very pretty.

    1. Thanks. The reason you can't have too many brooches is that they go through the wash! Thanks for visiting.

  7. I love both brooches - both very tactile. I like the beaded blanket stitch in particular. Lovely touch.
