I have finally accomplished something I have been talking about making for ages – an embroidered animal brooch. Here it is at long last:
I partly got the idea from one of my favourite brooches. It’s from the 1930’s and is hand embroidered, they used to sell little kits for people to make them. I love how it looks like a little painting until you look up close and realise it’s stitched.
Plus I can’t help thinking it bears some resemblance to my childhood (and adult) obsession… Sylvanian Families! This wasn’t intentional.
