Imitation of Leather

I have bought the brown imitation of leather a few months ago but got to it just now. I was thinking of making all sorts of stuff out of it, but then though to start with something small. So have a look at my handsewn brooch:

Each petal has three layers and they are embroidered with the pink beads. I finnished it with a pink polka dot button to give it more contrast.

Who knows, there might be more experiments like this in the near future :)


  1. Oh my, you must have very strong hands. I worked with faux leather a while back and only managed minimum hand stitching. Very pretty brooch look forward to further experiments.


  2. Really pretty, would look lovely on a handbag or headband too!
