Winter is the season for getting those indoor jobs done….those projects that have been on the back-burner.
One of the jobs on my to-do list for a while was to make a brooch cushion for my fledgling collection of Staffordshire Brooches. I only have two so far, but I am constantly on the look out for these little lovelies wherever I go.
These floral brooches are quite delicate and chip quite easily if stored in a jewellery roll or with other brooch. I could store them away safely in little boxes filled with cotton wool…but then I wouldn’t ever see them!
Here is what I came up with…I was given this sweet china slipper for Christmas last year and have wanted to use on my dressing table ever since…but wasn’t sure how. This seemed a fitting use, a china slipper to hold china rose brooches.
Here is what you’ll need to get/do if you want to make one of your very own.
You will need 1 x China Slipper
(which you cut into in half)
Then cover with your fabric of choice- I used a shot pink silk;
Then add your brooches;
It looks a little empty…. I might have to find a few more brooches to fill it up!
