Pussy cat brooches ...

>> Tuesday, 13 July 2010

seem to be quite popular at Ellie's Treasures.  My last cat brooch went to a fellow Folksy seller, Paulaz Jewellz.  I think she was very happy with it - in fact she even blogged about her new brooch (see her review here).

I have to say I love making these little felt brooches.  Each one is unique - no two could ever be the same as, apart from the actual button cat head or cat, all pieces are hand cut and hand sewn.  Each brooch slightly padded and stiffened, and each one has a sturdy catch bar pin secured to the back.

Brilliant for cat lovers and equally wonderful for the fashion conscious who are looking for something just that little bit different.

I have two little heart brooches available at Ellie's Treasures at the moment.  My first is similar to the one sold to Paulaz Jewelz - a darling little cat with its button face, fluffy curled up body and woollen tail.  I love the way it watches the butterfly!

My sister bought me a pack of ceramic pussy cat buttons (and a mouse) which inspired my second brooch.  "Cat peeking through the long grass" comes to mind when looking at this.  It has a lovely smiley face - perhaps seeing the pretty flower and tiny hearts puts it in a wonderfully happy mood.
