Hi there!!

I'm Jen from Tatertots'>http://tatertotsandjello.blogspot.com/">Tatertots & Jello!

Thanks Kyla for letting me stop by and join the party!!

I'd love to share a little project I'm a little obsessed with right now --

Rolled Flower Brooches!

These are addicting to make!

Here's what you need:
Fabric {either three different coordinating fabrics or one}
Liquid Stitch
Gorilla Glue or a Glue Gun
A Fastener

Here's what you do:

  • Make the flowers. Cut a length of fabric 1/2" wide and the length depends on how big you want the flower to be. 18 inches makes about a 2 inch flower.

  • put a little Liquid Stitch in the middle of the end of the fabric. Fold the fabric in half and roll it up a few times -- very tightly.

  • Put another dab of Liquid Stitch next to the roll and fold it over. Keep folding and wrapping as you go around the outside of the rolled material. Add a dab of Liquid stitch every 1/2 turn or so.

  • When you get to the end of the material, fold about 1/2 inch under the back of the material, adding a bunch of Liquid Stitch underneath. Let dry.

  • Make as many flowers as you want for your brooch.

  • Once you have all of your flowers made, secure the flowers to the felt using either hot glue or Gorilla Glue. Let dry. Cut a few strips of material about 1/3 inch wide and attach those under the rolled flowers.

  • Cut around the flowers.

  • Add some hot glue or Gorilla Glue to the back of the felt. Then put the fastener on top and let dry.

And you are done! Now you have a colorful brooch you can wear on a purse, a winter coat or sweater!! Or, you could attach them to a headband or hair clip for a fun hair accessory. It's my latest obsession -- I can't stop making them!!
