Summary

The aim of this book will be to provide a range of very attractive felt brooch designs that will appeal to seasoned sewing machine users as well as beginners. There is a techniques section which shows readers all the stitches that are used in the book, and the designs range from popular motifs such as an owl, a chicken, dogs, cats, cupcakes, fairies and flowers, as well as more quirky subjects such as a beach hut and a seed head. The author has made 20 designs in bought felt, which are featured in the styled shots, and 20 designs in her own handmade felt, which are used as a detail. As well as these, there is a template on each spread, which readers will enlarge by 200 per cent in order to trace. Some of the designs include tiny bits of organza, beads and other materials and all the stitching is explained carefully in the step-by-step instructions.

Author Biography

Myra Hutton trained in Textile Art and Dress & Textile Design with Education at Ilkley College (University of Bradford, W. Yorks) and spent several years teaching and developing her textile skills, often combining the two. She left teaching in 2003 to explore and develop her work as a textile artist, fusing natural fibres, hand dyed fabrics, and embellished hand-made felt to create rich landscapes, sunsets or seascapes. Most recently, she has combined her felt and illustrative style to produce smaller pieces and 'wearable art'.

Myra has exhibited at numerous shows, including Landmark Arts Contemporary Textile Fair, Craft @ Top Drawer and as an invited demonstrator for three years in the Specialists Craft & Design Marquee at Living Crafts Hatfield House and at their last show at Blenheim Palace. She will be showing at Ideal Homes Glasgow this May having been ‘spotted’ at Hatfield House.

Myra has exhibited in several galleries and her work has ended up in private collections throughout the UK and the rest of Europe, America & New Zealand. She gives talks and demonstrations, runs workshops for children and adults, and is a visiting artist to local schools working on bespoke creative textile projects. Myra has a strong online presence, with her own website, Facebook and Twitter accounts.
