Today, I have for you just a very quick tutorial :)
How to make a ribbon rosette brooch!
What you need:
Needle & Thread
Pleated Ribbon (You can also make your own - click here to learn how)
Piece of leather (or stiff piece of felt, laceys stiff stuff - must be nice and firm)
Button or cabochon for centre piece
|First, cut your base material into a circle to use as the base of your brooch.|
(remember, you don't need to use leather for this - felt and.or laceys stiff stuff would work great)
|Sew on the brooch back, whilst you are heating up your gluegun|
Simple eh? really really really simple!
remember if you do not want to make the pleated ribbon yourself, you can buy the ribbon already pleated from the internet! (like i did ... !)
Experiment with sizes, different ribbons, different buttons ...
use them as brooches, as keyrings, handbag charms ...
