I’ve been playing with small things over the Christmas period, like this single earring drop and a section of a felt sample I made for a lesson at school. Combined and embroidered a bit more, they became the front of a brooch.
Whipped back stitch to hold down the drop with a scrap of thick silk thread couched down underneath it.
The plain lilac felt back was secured with a beaded blanket stitch using some greyish purple delicas…
…and then the natural (deliberately wobbly) bottom edge was finished with a fringe of delicas, seed and pearl beads.
A nice quick little project and a good way of using up odds and ends of beads, threads and felt.
