Felt Flower Brooches Tutorial

UPDATE: this tutorial is now part of a set of printable PDF flower patterns, available from my shop.


Another month has rolled round, which means it's time for another free pattern for my newsletter subscribers - hurrah! May's freebie is a tutorial for sewing pretty layered felt flower brooches.

This design isn't based on a specific flower, but it was inspired by the lush many-petalled flowers of summer: camellias, peonies, roses, etc. They're quick and easy to sew and would make a bold addition to any outfit.

You can add a contrasting button to the centre of the flower or sew a cluster of seed beads for a more delicate effect.

The tutorial also includes templates and instructions for adding leaves to your brooch, and mixing in some patterned fabric for extra detail.

I send out my free email newsletter about once a week with updates of what I've been making and doing lately, plus links to my latest blog posts and tutorials and lots of creative and colourful things to inspire you.
