Introducing my new Bullseye and Cuctus Brooch Collections! Handmade felted wool pins with pizazz!



I just wanted to share my latest felted brooch designs. I'm calling these my Bullseye and Cactus Collections. Hopefully it is obvious to see why I named them that. These are relatively small pins at 2.5 inches in diameter. They are just the right size to accent a winter coat or sweater, a purse, or scarf. They are also an inexpensive handmade accessory that will be in the $10 - $15 price range. I will be listing them in my Etsy shop for sale very soon.

Each one is individually hand felted from raw dyed merino wool fibers so they are super soft yet very durable. I use a combination of needle felting and wet felting to achieve their polished look. I also hand stitch a base metal pin on the back. I'm experimenting with new color combinations so feel free to suggest one that I can try. You can see more photos of my new brooch collections in my flickr photo gallery.
