Vintage Mother's Day Brooch for Sarah



This is the vintage brooch  I send  Sarah, my partner in the Vintage Mother's Day Brooch Swap over at A Swap for All Seasons.  One of Sarah's favorites is anything with ballerinas.  I had this brooch in my vintage jewelry collection and decided to send it to her.   We were to design a unique way of presenting the brooch to our partner.

In my stash, I found a piece of vintage fabric featuring ballerinas.  I attached the vintage brooch to the  fabric.


 I then inserted the fabric with the brooch into a gold frame.  I found the gold frame at the thrift store and it worked perfectly for this swap.
Next I wrapped the little frame in another piece of the vintage fabric. 

To attach the fabric, I added a hand crocheted pink flower and pin with a heart tip.  I hope Sarah likes her ballerina themed package.

I am linking to Pink Saturday.  Check Beverly's How Sweet the Sound for other Pink Saturday posts.
