Egg Clown Brooch #5 [Needle felted, handmade, wearable fiber art]
It's a Needle Felted Egg Clown Brooch!
A small and very soft fiber art friend, to be worn as a special occasion brooch or on a favorite cap.
These brooches consist of an extremely dense yolk, with an outer coating of fine yellow Merino. With a high-gauge needle, a detailed face with a three-dimensional nose was carefully added.
All of this is surrounded by a pillowy soft collar of undyed Merino and finished with a metal button backing.
Diameter: 2 to 2.5 inches
Yolk diameter: 1 inch
Brooch back diameter: Just over 1 inch
Care and Keeping:
Needle-felted works are very sturdy in some ways, but quite delicate in others! Please read on to find out how to keep your new piece in the best condition possible.
Spot clean only
Washing machines will cause irreparable change to the fibers.
Keep away from pets!
Many a good Egg Boy has been mailed in for repairs after being snagged by a dog or cat.
Keep away from backpacks, dirt, etc
While it looks like a toy, this is a soft sculpture and is not meant to be excessively handled.
Keep away from small children!
Rough play will fuzz up the fibers, and the marbles inside could present a choking hazard if released.
