This is a hand made bird brooch is inspired by birds in flight. I love watching them soar above me, this one captures feeling of freedom watching the gulls play on the thermals around the coastal cliffs.
This chap is guided by a star stitched in gold thread.
Discs of various fabrics are cut by hand, layered together and sewn by machine using the free machine technique.
The backing fabric is a mottled blue striped fabric.
It is finished on the back with a 1 inch bar brooch.
It is 3 x 3 inches (just shy of 8x8cm) in size. However it's not floppy and stays flat against a jumper or cardigan.
