Handmade in my studio on the Isle of Skye in Scotland where swallows swoop and soar around the river near my home.

Made from a selection of bits of vintage and recycled tweeds and vintage cotton fabric. The swallow design has been machine embroidered onto a piece of baby blue cotton and then hand painted to give him his lovely colouring. This piece is then layered up with small pieces of tweed and vintage fabric 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.
