Something New: Felt & Fabric Brooches

Ok, this is my last round of beautiful photographs of my work - I swear! (All beautiful photos by Meghan Canavan)

I decided to change the design for my heart brooches. I added vintage fabric to a felt heart, and then hand embroidered the whole thing, adding cute buttons along the way. The effect is very summery.

This yellow one is my favorite:

After making the hearts, I thought circles would be cute. They look like girl scout badges, right?

Have a great weekend - hope your weather is better than our's in Chicago (cold-ish but still humid)!
