Weaving

 




 

I used Karen Barbe's beautiful mending tutorial to make woven brooches for a group of friends. After removing the woven bits from the card bits, I stretched them over polystyrene ovals (cut from saved mushroom punnets - mushrooms seemed to be on special this month), and secured them with a few big stitches across the back. I finished them off with an oval of felt and a safety pin sewn to it.
