“I only wanted to see you bathing in the purple rain.
I never wanted to be your weekend lover.
I only wanted to be some kind of friend.
Baby I could never steal you from another.
It’s such a shame our friendship had to end.
Purple rain, Purple rain…”
~ Purple rain by Prince
These felted flower brooches are hand felted all together in 2 layers with extra-fine merino wool from New Zealand and Australia in violet, yellow, orange, white, deep red and green colors. Also mulberry silk in blonde yellow is used to brighten up the flowers. No “felt cutting ready-made flower”, no glue and no stitches, except on its back on which a safety pin is adjusted and felted over with green wool. The -purple rain- flower measures approximately 15 cm (5.9 in) diameter and 45 cm (17.7 in) circumference. Respectively the -wild orchid- flower measures approximately 13-23 cm (5.1-9.1 in) diameter since it is asymmetrical and 55 cm (21.7 in) circumference.
