Today, I thought I would show you how to make a simple ribbon brooch.
I have this one on my jacket most of the time and it is always commented on.
I like to rip fabric into ribbons but you could actually use ribbons if you like a neater appearance. I like the frayed edges that ripped fabric gives you plus I find there is a sense of satisfaction in ripping fabric.
The fabric is about 2cm wide (3/4 in) but they do vary.
The coral is about 8cm long (3 1/4 in)
The duck egg blue about 6 cm long (2 1/4 in)
Rip up a good number and then layer them in a circular fashion.
With a strong needle and thread, stitch through them catching all pieces.
Then, lay the smaller one on top of the larger and sew them together using a button on the centre top.
All you need now to do is trim the edges if you want and sew a brooch attachment on the back.
