Fabric Petal Brooch

Fabric Petal Brooch

This flower pin makes a wonderful brooch or scarf pin and can be made using recycled fabric. This one is made from an old skirt hem.

What you need

Heavy scrap fabric
Brooch back
Craft glue
Sewing machine (optional)
Sharp scissors
Seed beads
Jewelry Wire


Take your fabric and cut out a 5 petal flower.

Use your sewing machine with matching thread and sew around all the edges (this is optional).

Use your scissors or a hole punch to punch a hole into the middle of the flower.

Take your jewelry wire and cut 5 1 inch (2.5 cm) lengths.

Thread the seed beads onto each length and push through the center hole in the flower. Push through some feathers for a decorative effect.

Bend the wires securely at the back of the flower.

Cover the wires with a small piece of felt or scrap fabric.

Glue on your brooch back, hair band or pin.
