Birthday Brooches & Keepers

A few presents for a recent birthday. First a brooch made with some lovely Aizome Chiyogami Washi*

Something to keep the above in and along with the recipients collection of brooches, a brooch keeper.

It is a variation on this brooch keeper from Buttontree Lane (or it could always be used as an extra large needle case!).

Aizome – Indigo dye
Chiyogami – “Chiyo” thousand generation, “gami” paper
Washi – “Wa” Japanese, “shi” paper
