A cheeky highland cow adorns this lovely textile brooch.
This unusual rosette style fabric brooch is ideal to add an arty touch to your outfit!
It would make a lovely gift for anyone who loves textiles with it's layers of gorgeous fabrics and is also perfect for animal lovers with it's beautifully depicted highland coo!
This brooch is handmade in my studio on the Isle of Skye, where these traditional cattle like to munch grass in the fields all day.
Other designs are available in this style.
Made from a selection of bits of vintage and recycled tweeds and vintage cotton fabric. The cow design has been machine embroidered onto a piece of linen and then hand painted to give him his lovely colouring. This piece is then layered up with small pieces of tweed and vintage cottons and secured to a sturdy piece of interfacing and backed with a pretty vintage cotton. It has a brooch fastening to the back just ready to pin onto the cardigan or jacket of your choice!
This piece measures approx. 15cm x 6cm and comes in a handmade fabric pouch.
