It occurred to me that I hadn’t made any more of these for a while, probably because it took forever to embroider the lazy daisy flowers on the last one but if I used some form of appliqué they should go quicker. Crocheted miniature granny squares in multicoloured crochet thread seemed like a good idea.
And a strip of Japanese kimono silk as a backing picked up the yellow in the checks of the cuff fabric.
I also bought a load of old watch parts on ebay recently, including a beautiful engraved gold coloured pocket watch face.
It was the perfect size to go into the base of a goldtone vintage brooch missing its central stone.
I love that you can turn it over and see the workings.
A new lease of life.
