Whats a name?


I finally finished stitching my Swippity Swap Name Tag for Sew It Together lastnight.


I thought a little bit outside the square (literally) and created an aqua and red flower brooch (measuring 9cm x 9cm), with a piece of felt stitched in underneath. I've embroidered my recipients name onto the felt.... (which of course, has magically been erased for these photos).

Note to recipient: please forgive my crappy embroidery skills!


At the end of Sew It Together, the felt can be snipped away with a pair of scissors leaving a brooch which can be kept.

I'm not going to pop it in the post just yet.... I'm going to wait until we get closer to the deadline.

Great colour combo, and a gift that keeps on giving!

Gorgeous, I love it! Do you machine stitch with different coloured threads on the flower to get that look, or do you have some extra special felt that is already stitched. I'm sure the recipient will love this to bits! :-)
