Hello dear crafters and brooch makers!
Today I want to share an extremely lovely and easy DIY for a textile brooch. I have made a couple of these textile brooches for my newest collection, which has been ready for quite a long time now, and I wanted to share this with you so you could also create something beautiful for yourself and someone you love. For these make the perfect gifts!
Supplies come from your trinket boxes and that's the beauty of this - you can use scraps of fabric and ribbon too.
Basically you need a couple of different fabrics in texture. For this brooch I used an elastic lace piece, an irregularly cut off rectangular piece of organza, a fabric rosette, three pearly beads and metal findings. I mustn't forget the white (transparent) ribbon. I wanted to add the pink ribbons also included in the picture as well but discarded them afterwards, and that is why you don't see them on the brooch. Mystery solved; let's resume :)
The rosette was already made. As for the dangling rose, I folded the organza in half and then folded / stacked it up. When it was all gathered together I sew the lower part in place and then capped it with a filigree cap.
On the fixed part of the brooch pin (and this is important to mind the fixed and non - fixed part of the pin) - first place the ribbon and the lace piece over it.
Secure them both by sewing them near the brooch pin, as closely as you can. Sew the rosette on the upper left corner.
Sew / attach the beads under / on the bottom of the rosette.
Add (sew / attach with a jump ring) the capped flower and you are done!
Hope you make it and love it!
