Sweet Heart Brooch


I've found it difficult to get motivated to do ANY sewing this week. 

We have had a heatwave here in South East Queensland that's made it difficult to do much more than roll out of bed and fight your way into work to get to air conditioning (and yes we are crazy and don't have air con in our house).

Enough of me complaining ;)

Soooo, I made this little brooch late last night when the temp was just starting to drop a little. I used a scrap of natural linen I already had in my scrap basket and some pearl cotton thread in a brilliant red. 

I've just used french knots to form the shape of a heart, which I then stuffed with left over scraps of wadding from my quilts (I'm not sure about you, but I find it difficult to throw anything away sewing wise).

Once the french knots were completed I cut out a matching backing and then hand sewed the two together.

To finish it off I sewed a little brooch pin to the centre back and it was finished. 

It's so sweet, I can't wait to wear it.

Caity x
