Felt brooch with antique silk flowers. An Ideal Christmas gift

I have made this pretty felt brooch with four silk flowers.

This little brooch is handmade The felt has been made using turquoise coloured merino wool fibres with additions of silk fibres. The felt has been made by myself by a process of wet felting so that the hooks on the wool all lock together creating a strong fabric.

The flowers have petals made from antique silk chiffon scarves and have a French knot embroidered at the centre.

In order to make the whole brooch stiffer I have sandwiched a layer of decovil light fabric between the felt and the pretty English 1960's vintage fabric. A pin has been securely stitched onto the reverse.

The brooch measures approx. 4cms(1.6") x 5cms(2") .

 I am happy to combine shipping, please see the details in the 'shipping and policies' link underneath the images.

I have many years of shipping worldwide through my 'Rag Rescue' business so please be assured that a great deal of care will be taken to ensure that your orders arrive safely with you.

This will come packed neatly in a box which makes it ideal for a gift.

An ideal Christmas gift.
