Green Heart Brooches

Showing the love

These fabric brooches are handmade from felt, ribbon and scraps of cloth, with a brooch pin sewn on the back. They’re a great project for using up offcuts, ends of ribbon, mismatched buttons and sequins. I used a sewing machine to “collage” a background from cloth and ribbon, then cut out heart shapes, backed them with felt and hand stitched the edges with embroidery thread.


I made these for the #ShowTheLove campaign and took them in to work on Valentine’s Day. Six of them went to new homes and I raised £15.10 for The Climate Coalition.
