I had this Vintag-ish Fabric that I had no idea what to make out of. It was really cheap, but so cute & I felt like it was so special & I wanted to make something really special out of it.
So I made these two Brooches to wear on my shirt or on my bags :)
Cut out a length of fabric, I didnt really measure, it can be as thick or thin as you want it to within reason :)
I'd say 2 -3 inches thick is just dandy
Fold your fabric in half.
This is kind of odd - very optional:
I flat ironed it down to make it neat & have a crease.
roll a bit together to make the center & glue it to keep it together after a few rolls.
Take the fabric and twist it, but not too tight.
Gluing regularly as you go along to the sides.
Twist twist - glue. Twist twist - glue.
o-o i duno if that makes sense
After a while - it should look like this.
Keep going - and glue the remainder down on the back like so.
Glue any loose spots that you see
Optional: glue a little bit of ribbon to make an accent piece.
Glue a circle of scrap felt to support the flower & cover up the uglies :P
Glue your clip or pin piece to the the circle of felt using a smaller piece of felt.
And you're all done :D!
