Felt Leaf Brooches

Busy sewing- in between other, far less interesting, tasks. Two different styles of leaf brooch: one based on an oak leaf and inspired by the raised decoration on a 16th century German salt-glazed pot,


the other inspired by an eighteenth century fabric design



and an almost circular brooch suggested by a metal buckle from the Balkans in a display at the British Museum


...never be without a sketch book, you don't know when you might see something that triggers an idea....

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog and making me wonder about yours. Its lovely - I especially like the way you detail your inspiration behind your creations - obviously I like the top ones inspired by saltglazed pots!
