An adorable hand crafted pet portrait fabric brooch, available in the dog breed, cat or animal of your choice.
Created by applique and embroidering cut fabrics; my fabric dog brooches are an ideal gift for that someone in your life who simply just loves their dog, as a letterbox gift to make them smile, a birthday gift or to maybe to remember a departed loved pet by.
How they're made
Each dog decoration is hand cut from cotton mix fabrics.
Once all the cut pieces are attached they are placed on top of a felt backing fabric.
I then embroider the fabric brooch using the free motion technique on my sewing machine. No two brooches will ever be exactly the same.
Once all the lines and features are sewn I cut the brooch out.
The design is single sided, the reverse side is a plain coloured felt with a metal brooch pin attached by hand.
How to order
My handmade dog brooches are available in a variety of pets. After placing your order please email me with three clear side on facial images of your chosen pet. I will then confirm if the images are suitable to work from and discuss any design details with you. It is possible to add a collar or bandana to the designs.
Personalised pet portrait brooches usually take around a week to make and dispatch, this can be longer at seasonal gifting peak times. When my order book is full the listing will show as sold out.
Sizes vary depending on the pet and breed but are approximately 4-6cm high
Pet portrait brooches arrive packaged on a branded backing card and wrapped in a little spotty bag.
Country of Manufacture
Handmade in England by Ren Ellery
The process of stitching and raw edged fabric means the brooches will fraw along the edge a little until the fabric finally wears to the stitched edge. Like many pooches a little groom maybe required over time, a little trim/hair cut with sharp scissors will resolve this.
