Lilac garden felt brooch by Feltissimo

My inspiration for for this pretty felt brooch was a country garden.

I make all of my felt by hand, using Merino wool fibres. By using the wet felting method, I get the the wool fibres to entangle together to create a firm felt fabric. The machine stitching I have used on the felt brooch has raised some areas creating small flower beds which I filled with embroidery. A variety of stitches were used using vintage recycled silk threads. Further texture was added by using 1930’s rococco ribbon flowers. I also added on this brooch two other lilac vintage flowers, to make this felt brooch unique.
