silver lining

This is a favourite brooch of mine that I made and wore at the Decorate book launch last year in April. I was intending on wearing a high street brooch I had bought from Hoss (a favourite store of mine), but decided the day before the launch that I should wear one that I had made rather than bought. So I got busy and made this little felt cloud brooch. The silver scissors and heart key charms were lucky finds at Sunbury antiques fair in Kempton and are little surprises amongst the glistening silver beads of rain. The scissors open and shut and are really quite special.

There is an embroidered felt brooch project in my new book and the rain cloud motif also features in a project too. Both projects have full step-by-step instructions on how to make them if you want to try this at home. If you love jewellery you might also like this post.

Wearing a homemade brooch on your clothing is something that people always notice, and, as I wrote in my first book, there is nothing like the feeling you get when someone remarks how much they like something and you can reply “I made it”.

  4. ohhh… I love that you titled your blog post “Silver Lining”…. something close to my heart!
    I’m putting the title of your book on my “WISH LIST” in hopes that my hubs will notice it (ummm… may have to direct him to your website)…
    I have a pair of scissors (silver charm) that open & close. I won it in a sewing contest 48 years ago… WOW! it’s almost antique!
