Jackie Cardy's Profile

About

Sewing makes me happy - keeps me sane, hope what I sew and sell makes you happy too.
My brooches are made with the greatest of care and attention to detail. I make the felt using merino wool, which I blend to produce magical mixes of colour. Then I wet it, rub it and roll it until its all bonded together, then I stiffen it. I wait a day(sometimes two) for it to dry.

I dye most of the velvet with cold water dyes. Then I can make the brooches.
I design them, sew them, embroider them, stiffen them, add a pretty Liberty Lawn backing, trim them and add a sturdy pin where necessary, then I check them. Sometimes I add hand stitch. Then I print and cut a card to attach them for selling.

They are priced to reflect the hours spent designing, developing and working on them, and the cost of materials and equipment…
