Last week it was my friend Lou‘s birthday and I made her this brooch.
Being in full time work at the moment means I haven’t had much time to sit down at the sewing machine and make clothes*, but I have been fiddling with bits and pieces to make accessories. The parts for this brooch (a kilt pin, actually) were originally parrot earrings which I removed from their posts, while the green apple dangling between the two birds is a bead I made from Fimo ages ago.
The brooch is pinned to a postcard of a tropical rainforest so that it looks like the parrots are sitting up in the trees nibbling away on some fruit. Well, at least that’s what it’s meant to look like… a little imagination may be called for…
*This explains my lack of outfit posts lately. Sorry!
You so clever! I think it's gorgeous XoxoxPS. I DO know the William Angliss op-shop and I only discovered it recently, after going to the other FTG ones for years! Will go tomorrow, thanks 🙂
oh its lovely. I like to use Kilt Pins too for making brooches, especially knitted ones, that you can use to hold a scarf together.
Ah, so cute!!
