The most important — a right choice of fabric. The brooch can be made both of fabrics of different color, and from one fabric — everything depends on effect which you want to receive. The size of fabric depends on how you will cut out circles on petals. The minimum size is 50 × 55 cm.
We define what colors of fabric will be on various tiers of a brooch.
I have taken the most dark sites on the lower tier, the lightest on top and intermediate colors on average tiers.
We cut out circles with a diameter of 6,5 cm on petals.
Quantity: 18 dark petals on 1 tier, 24 intermediate on two average tiers (14 and 10 respectively) and 7 lightest petals on the top tier.
Also it is necessary to cut out 4 circles for a bud with three leaves.
We make petals.






We collect petals in a chain. I use the Japanese threads for stitches. They are rather strong, and at the same time not thick and them it is convenient to sew.


We make a brooch basis. We cut out a circle with a diameter of 5,2 cm from thin plastic.
We cut out a circle with a diameter of 6 cm from fabric and having put inside a little synthetic winterizer, we fit fabric a plastic circle.


We sew the lower tier of a brooch to a basis from inner side.
Then very accurately we sew a circle from petals to a basis a secret seam. Color of threads under color of petals. Stitches have to be small, accurate.

We collect the second tier of petals. Principle same.
We already sew this tier to a brooch basis from the face.


As a result at you between two lower rows has to look through edge of a basis a little.

We try on the third tier of petals (from 10 pieces) and we sew it through to a basis a seam "back a needle", as well as in the previous time.

If edges of petals are visible, they should be hidden. A round needle we sew petals of two tiers among themselves a secret seam.

We sew the fourth (most top) tier of petals to a basis.


We collect a flower bud. Strong we pull together three petals and we sew them together that the star has turned out.
We cut out a circle with a diameter of 5 cm from the light site of fabric and we do a bud.


We sew petals to the center of a bud
