I have been playing around with fabric to make brooches with kits from KimoYES. In a previous blog here I showed some button brooches that were made from kimono silk. This time I used cotton. The two cat brooches are made from Japanese cotton and the heart fabric is a light cotton that I think I bought from Rathdowne Fabrics. I added iron-on interfacing to stop the silvery shine of the button shell showing through the fabric. It also had the added benefit of giving the fabric more body.
I have a cat-loving friend who will be receiving these as a birthday gift.
