Flower Brooches with Bast

Flower Brooches with Bast

A t-shirt, a pair of jeans, a happily coloured extra - and you are ready for the sun. These flower brooches are literally breathing summer mood. They not only fit in with casual outfits, but as well match a linen suit or a little black  dress. Or put one of them on a straw hat ...

Pink Blumenbrosche

You'll need:

  • Craft foam,
  • a small piece of felt,
  • some natural bast,
  • embroidery yarn, 2 colours,
  • sewing thread,
  • 1 brooch pin,
  • two-component-glue.

Here is how it's done:

Create a paper pattern for the flower:

Blütenschnitt machen

Fold a 10 cm square diagonally once, plus another 2 times along the middle. Halve the resulting triangle along the longer side, which will create a wedge with unequal border lengths. Cut this wedge into the shape of half a petal, sort of. Unfold the paper - and, tadah, you have a flower pattern!

With this pattern cut out a flower from craft foam.

Make another, smaller copy of the pattern, about 3 cm in diameter, and with that one cut out flower shapes from felt or craft foam.

Gather a bunch of bast threads and a few threads of embroidery yarn. Don't bother with exact lengths, a bit of unevenness is highly welcome. Bind the bunch together off center using embroidery thread and make a knot.

Quastbüschel binden

Grab into the bunch with your thumb and index finger from top and bottom and press it flat. Place the short ends at the bottom.

Flachgepresstes Büschel

In order to get and keep the whole thing really flat, you will want to sew both layers together. This is done best with a piece of bast, weaving across the center or around the center. Here you can see both techniques:

Now the parts are ready to be assembled:

Attach the bast piece with a few stitches onto the flower stitching up and down several times.

After that touch up the shape of the bast piece, where necessary, kind of like a hairdresser would do with a feathery haircut. Keep the shagginess, it's cute!

Attach the small flower shapes onto the center with a few stitches.

Finally attach a brooch pin to the back. Two-component-glue will be a good match for the craft foam body.

And now ... enjoy the sun!
