Colourful Blackwork Hearts

Pink Yellow Blackwork WIP

After my addiction to colourful blackwork brooch making of the circular variety, I thought I'd break out the hearts. I do love a heart, how can you not?!? And, to my surprise they make for a rather pleasing pattern making shape, worth their tricky making that's for sure. It may look like I have an unhealthy obsession with pins, but the shape does not hold together with the many layers of fabric, I promise!

So far I've only made one of each colour as I'm enjoying experimenting with pattern and colour too much, so I may keep this more of an experimental range. If there is a colour and pattern you like let me know, I'm happy to make things to order. 


  1. These are pretty, delicate, old fashioned yet modern with the pattern upon the heart. I must admit I prefer your round style brooches, they seem to suit me better, as I find hearts or items with heart motifs a bit too romantic for my taste. This is most likely because I am more cynical in nature! Regardless of my spinster cynicism I find these lovely, and any design on a heart shaped brooch would be a well received and appreciated gift for anyone. 💜

    1. Thank you for your feedback, Ms. Phoebe, I do love to know what people think! Everyone is different, I too like how the circles work but I must admit to being a romantic in my own way.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment.
