Hi! I've finished another cute little owl brooch, complete with moving wings, and she's on my Etsy shop now! The colours remind me of April skies; grey and heavy with rain, but also pink cherry blossom bursting from branches.
I do like making these little owls, but they are quite fiddly to make! The favourite part of making them is doing the french knots in shaded thread, because I love seeing the little knots appear in a different colour each time! Yes, I know, simple things for simple people... ;-)
I'm going to be soon making some purses with buttons and embroidery, similar to my tote bags (like the one below), but obviously on a smaller scale. I saw a lovely little purse today in Accessorize, the fabric was slightly sparkly and it had some delicate embroidery. I want to create the same sort of feeling I got when I handled it, something precious to hold something else which is precious... it was far too nice to put dirty loose change into!
My pastel circles bag... hand-sewn, with hand embroidery and cute buttons!
So watch this space for some work-in-progress shots very soon!
