this is my first and second attempt at brooches

SCROLL DOWN FOR TUTE!!!

i used random parts to make them, lace, ribbon, chain, pearl threaded stuff, cameos, metal findings, and beads.  used reallly strong adhesive for these, smells bad lol but i think they turned out nicely!
no1

the dot on the cameo is a diamonte it jus didnt photograph well Undecided

for size... its pretty big...

no 2

with this one i made a rose out of broderie englais? sp? lol then went from there.
the pin is holding the side in while the glue dries.
------------------------------------------------------------------

brooch tute!!

i made this one sort of rockabilly themed.

you will need:
a focal point for your peice ( black enameld heart button)
trims; broderie englais sp? stretch ginham trim (whatever you want)
ribbon; red polka dot
black thin lace
black chain
any beads; (skull pearls and dice)
small scrap of fabric
brooch backing, you could use a safety pin
needle and thread
scissors
EXTREMELY strong glue!!! (i use clear liquid nails or tarzan grip, US ppl use e600)





1. start by making your base. i used my red gingham stretch trim. with a needle and thread baste 1 inch along your trimming, when at the end pull tightly to gather makes like a rosette.


2. attatch focal point to centre of  rosette, i used a black enameld heart button so it sewed it on.

3. play around with how to attatch broderie englaise to the rosette, i cut notches out so it didnt sit to tightly around. then attatch with glue and a few stitches.


now you have the bones of your broach, and you can start to decorate!!

4.start gluing on your ribbons and lace, and make up any beading sections and attatch to  chains.
just fool around with the trims till you like the way it looks then sew and glue on.

5. cut a peice of fabric into a circle to cover up the back of the rosette, glue down then glue on brooch backing or safety pin, cover with another square of fabric for strenght and to cover the glue



depending on the glue used, let dry according to directions, then you have a pretty brooch to wear!!!

you can even attatch them to a ribbon to make a chocker

(sorry if its a lil bit crappy, this is my first tute!!)

thanks for looking  Wink

c&c welcome!
