awwww Thanks!!! =^..^=
I'm pleased with the results and will be doing some more - different types of kitties and I'd like to do more to the fish. I almost used embroidery floss to do scales, but the shine of the floss when I did one of the fins was distracting. I removed that and just left the eye and mouth.
I was going to wet felt this brooch too as I have with some (most) of the dog brooches, but I couldn't bring myself to do it!! LOL!! I did needle felt the heck out of it to secure the fibers really well. Next one will get wet felted too - just adds to the durability of the piece.
P.S. Who wears brooches these days??
When I look over the jewelry being offered where I do my classes, there's always a lot of necklaces, bracelets and earrings. There are brooches now and then, but I'm getting the impression that it's a less popular form of jewelry now than at other times. What do you think???
