Debra Sargeant lives in a lovely Essex village with her motorcycle mad husband, son, and two cats. Her pets, as well as other people’s pets, have had a huge impact on her crafting.
“My most popular items seem to be my doggy badges and I have also done a few pet portrait badges where I recreate peoples pet into a felt badge. The doggy brooches were originally inspired by a keyring I found and then I started looking at dog breeds to see which ones were suitable”
Debra’s doggy pins are really individual and a huge amount of time and stitches goes into each one. They are a perfect present for dog lovers, especially as the individual breeds that Debra recreates are easily recognisable to dog enthusiasts.
If you are more of a cat person yourself, never fear, for Debsmuddle also designs Kitty brooches, based on different breeds of cat. Each full of the intricate detailing that makes Debra’s dog brooches such a favourite.
