I met a lovely lady from Harris recently, who very kindly gave me a big bag of gorgeous Harris Tweed scraps and samples. What a treasure! I`m so grateful to her.
There are lovely deep textures and colours and also some interesting stitching linking some of the samples together. Most of the samples are little bits which are perfect for brooches or covered buttons, but some pieces are large enough for a cushion or a bag.
I`m sure I`ll get lots of pleasure using the tweed in many projects to come. To start with I made some more little owl brooches. The texture of the Harris tweed really suits them. The little purple one is my favourite!
