  • How to sew a fabric flower brooches. Fabric Roses - Step 1
    Step 1

    First you will cut out 6 - 8 petals in 2 sizes. The pink rose is with 6 petals and the black roses are made from 8 petals. The more petals the larger and fuller the rose will become.

    The petals are 2 different sizes. I will be happy to send you a PDF with my pattern. Just drop me an email at melynda@ilove2create.com.

    Step 3

    You are going to handsew with a running stitch each of the petals together. Start with a larger petal followed by a smaller petal till you have them all together with a running stitch.

    Step 4

    Pull the running stitch a little to gather to petal as shown in the photo. I tie a knot when the flower petals are gathered.

    Next you will start to wind the flower petals around creating your rose. You can gather in your fingers and then sew it all together. You will be matching the edges together on the bottom. The bottom will be wide but flat. I think that makes sense.

    Or my favorite way to wind it is to take your low-temp glue gun and use a little glue as you wind your way around.

    Step 5

    Attach a small piece of felt to the bottom to hide all the rough edges. Perfect to add a pen to and wear as a brooch.
