Designed by Jane on Etsy

I love this artist...the designs in her felt brooches are so simple but so effective.  The colours are so rich and well matched, and the textures and symmetry just make these so appealing to me.  Buttons and felt!  Love it.

I like using wool felt, I like it for making pincushions and pillows, and I like how it looks with the edges pinked.  These fabulous brooches have inspired me to try appliquing felt on to some of my crazy quilts, I often use felt as patches but it hadn't occurred to me to make shapes, flowers, etc.  Something to experiment with!

Designed by Jane has loads more designs in her Etsy shop, including some cuffs and bags and crocheted pieces.  Yummy eye candy, well worth a look!
