Pippin Run Wild, Refashioning

Experimenting

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been stepping into the unknown. Or sewing into the unknown, really. A few ideas that were just too tempting not to at least try were tried. Butterfly fabric brooch, made with upcycled plaid fabric, vintage black lace, and beads. Butterfly fabric brooch, made with upcycled plaid fabric, vintage black lace, and beads. I’d been thinking about butterfly brooches for a few months, and this is how my first attempt worked out. It’s not my finest handiwork (notice, no photos of the back), so it will be staying with me, but I’m still pleased with the basic design – it has potential!

And as I was playing with lace back in November, I thought it might be fun to make a crown… Black lace head crown, made with vintage black lace. Gothic style.

  1. I really like the butterflies. From your photo I can’t see what size they are. Definitely a project worth pursuing.
