Teacup and saucer brooch

finished projects

This little teacup is done mostly in split stitch, couched in gold. The blue flower details are done in lazy daisy and outline stitch. After the stitching was done, I glued the fabric to a piece of felt and attached a brooch back.

It’s pretty rare to see hand embroidery and sometimes people think the things I’ve made were done by machine or freehand embroidery machine. I wanted the label to highlight handstitching, so I put the brooches in a mini hoop and included a list of stitches on the back. Pretty chuffed with how they turned out!

This and the the tea cozy brooch will be auctioned off at an annual fundraiser for the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery in Waterloo, Ontario.

I'm a dye hard fan of textile history and come from a family of crafters. I'm interested in learning more about embroidery by trying out age old techniques with a contemporary twist. I hope you enjoy looking through my projects and that they inspire you to give stitching a try!
