Five Felt Brooches

On Saturday 7th June we’re making Felt Brooches. I’ll try and get some instructions here before Saturday for those who can’t make it.

In the meantime, here are Five Brooches that caught my eye on the internet…

1. Punky Mouse by Tiny Art

This shop found on Dawanda has some great little brooches with obviously a lot of hard work gone into each one.

This little fellow I really like though.

I love his multi-coloured mohawk and cheeky little smile.

 

2. Popsicle Brooch by Hannah Doodle

Just what is needed for the summer. Her shop on Etsy is chock-a-block full of cute little brooches all of which look amazing.

 

3. English Breakfast Brooch by Kat Kraft UK

It’s making me very hungry.

The detail though is stunning, what a fantastic brooch though. If you’re in a healthy mood though you can choose a ploughmans lunch of beans on toast. All great british food and since it’s made from polymer clay it’s not going to add any calories either.

 

4. Animal Brooches by Annie Montgomerie

Annies work is amazing.

I’m often stuck in the world of Art OR Craft, like many I imagine. Am I a crafts person or an artist. Annie’s work though successfully brings Art and Crafts together.

5. Vintage Women Brooches by Yalipaz

I love these brooches from Israel made from suede and felt, with hand painted facial details. I just don’t know which one I’d choose, but she has a great Rockabilly one in the shop at the moment.

 

So Five different styles of brooches. We’re making our own brooches this Saturday at Inkwell Arts (7th June) 10.30am till 12.30pm. £6 each or £9 for parent and child.

We’ll be drawing our own patterns out a bit like our cloud brooches but let’s see how creative we can be.

I’ll try and put up some instructions before Saturday for those not in Leeds but want to join in (a virtual craft group!)

 

 

So! What do you think?
