Each kit makes 1 pretty embroidered bird brooch and there are 5 designs to choose from.
The kits are designed and made with love in New Zealand and are a special collaboration between Twill Textile Design and Rosemary Horn – who is an amazingly talented photographic artist, embroiderer and friend.
Ready-to-wear brooches are also available to order.
I’ve been wanting to make one of these wall hangings for a long time. I simply tied on some natural textured yarns onto a piece of driftwood (using larkspur knots); attached some delicate beach finds; did a bit of hand weaving over and under groups of threads here and there; and finally, added a touch of silvery sparkle.
Think I’ll call it a ‘dreamweaver’ – maybe it looks a bit 1970’s, but spending an hour quietly making something with natural elements has made me really happy 🙂
