I have an amazing box full of vintage lace and ribbons which I have been using for these new brooches. I love using this material because it means a lot to me (since it has been part of my mom's, grandma's and great aunts' "stashes") and I feel like it truly has a soul, a history.
Rushing/sewing the lace has been my favorite part in making these! It requires a lot of minutiae, which I love, and takes some time but I almost always feel happy about the result.
I made these with a bunny theme as they will be part of a "bunny show" at the Eve-N-odd gallery in Florida in April but I am already making more with different designs... I will post some pictures soon :)
I tremendously enjoyed making these brooches and I hope you will like them too!
