These are so easy to make.
All you need is some black felt and orange ribbon.
To make the Zero the ghost dog’s brooch I cut a strip of the black felt using pinking sheers. I then stitched a running stitch along the bottom of the felt strip. This doesn’t have to be neat, so you don’t have to be a good seamstress to do this.
Gather your felt up into a tight circle by pulling on your thread and then stitch the two ends together to form your first rosette.
Do the same for the ribbon piece.
Layer the felt rosette on top of the ribbon one and put your button on the top with the shank of the button poking through the hole in the middle of the two rosettes.
Stitch the button to the sides of the rosettes to secure. You won’t see this so make sure its nice and secure.
Cut another small piece of felt and stitch that as neatly as you can on the back of your rosette to cover the hole. You can then add a brooch back to the back too to make a sweet brooch for your bag or coat.
The smaller brooch made using the Jack Skeleton head button was made in the same way but I used a thiner ribbon and thinner strip of black felt.
Of course you don’t have to stop at two rosettes, you can build them up using different ribbons, lace and fabric strips as you wish
I hope you like my brooches and will give them a go. If you have any questions or need help then you can contact me here or over on our Facebook page.
