Felt, Embroidery and Beads

I found stunning felt brooches yesterday while browsing on Etsy... 

Portrait felt brooch by redstitchlab


I had to share some of the images with you as I am pretty sure you will feel inspired as well. Most of them are entirely made of felt and hand-embroidered, but some have beads and another one is made with crochet. Do you know how to crochet? I don't know and really would like to learn as my Grand-Ma is really good at it and can make anything she wants.... I wish I learnt it when I was younger!

Another technique I am very keen to learn is making felt. As many others I am usually buying the machine made felt for my crafts projects, but when I see the butterfly brooch below which obviously has been made entirely by hand, I am impressed!

Talking about felt, there is my upcoming sewing workshop next Saturday, February 11. Are you planning to join?
