My creative space ...


Teeny critters coming to life on brooches for their big day out.


Each week there are a few comments about my pin cushion but I can't take credit for it, in fact it's rare that I sew something for myself so I nabbed this one from the oh so lovely tiny house.

The felt is 100% wool from Winterwood and is used for the brooch backs, the fabric is organic cotton canvas from Duckcloth and the upholstery fabric is a re-purposed sample soon to be made into Singleton button brooches like this one.

For more spaces or to show off your own, grab a cuppa and head over to Kirsty's.
