This is my latest selfmade accessorie: a lime brooch. The colors of my French Riviera-shirt inspired me for this, the colors look so summerlike with the fresh stripes and lime green “French Riviera” embroidery. As I like brooches (modern and vintage), I had a try on this project: I made this beaded lime-brooch. You need just a piece of a soft felt plate, some Miyuki-Delica beads, needle, thread, brooch needles (or shoe clips). First I printed a fruit slice (a clipart from the internet) on t-shirt transfer folies and ironed this on the felt plate piece (so that you know where to embroider the beads). Cut a slit with a scissor like you would cut a real fruit slice to garnish a cocktail. I applicated Delica-beads stitch by stitch by hand until the whole surface is covered (and also the edges). I used a special beading needle (it’s flexible). The backside is covered with leather and at last I sewed on a shoe clip. I made this handicraft during a boring tv-evening. Will be not my last one. I also go for juicy melon…
