For the HSFs 19 challenge: Metal, wood and bone I decided to make yet another simple piece.
I’ve been in need of some Suffragett symbols and ribbons, to wear to an upcoming event.
So I searched the internet and fell in love with these beautiful suffragett brosches.
So I bought three frames from the local craft store.
I also got some ribbon (violet, green, yellow, white and lace) and started to tie rosettes.
Once by my computer I searched and found some fascinating Swedish women who fought for the rights of women in the beginning of the century.
I printed and glued the pictures into the frames, and then sewed the ribbons to the frames. So simple.
I think they look lovely, although I do not know if this was something who actually was being worn by the women’s rights movements at the time, or a more recent invention.
Just the facts:
Challenge: 19 Wood, metal and bone
What: Womens rights brosches
Notions: metal frames, ribbons, glue, hot glue, paper, thread.
Historical accuracy: I have no idea, but ribbons in violet, white and green/yellow was the symbol of the movement.
Time: 1 hour
Cost: 100Sek (11 USD)
First worn: Not yet, but will be on the 5 okt for a Suffragett brunch.
