Pretty felted brooch, felt pin with bugle beads and Chinese trim- FB14 Christmas gift .

 A pretty handmade felt brooch/pin made from merino wool fibres in various shades of white, green and yellow. A design has been created at the top using golden coloured Victorian bugle beads. At the outward edge of the cut lengths of glass cane I have embroidered a french knot in vintage silk.

The lower end of the brooch/pin has a wonderful antique Chinese embroidered trim in shades of green, coral, cream and red.

In order to make the brooch firm, a layer of Decovil 1 iron on interfacing has been sandwiched between the felt and the woven wool backing. A secure pin has been sewn onto the back.

This brooch can be worn vertically or horizontally as seen in the photo's.

Measurements - approx. 9cms x 5cms (3.5" x 2" )

An ideal gift item especially at Christmas, that is if you can part with it.
