Week 3 Project – Organza rose

As promissed I come back today with the few steps of this nice and tiny organza brooch.

As the project was done during few days due to long weekend spent out of Prague and other projects priority, pictures are taken on few steps and days.

1. You need:

– organza;

– scissors;

– needle;

– thread;

– candle;

– beads;

2. Cut circles of different sizes. 3-4 of each size.

3. Cut each circle in half and prepare a little candle. Using the techique from Organza flower carefully melt the margins of the half circles.

4. Now you can start building up your rose. Start with the small petals and sew one by one. You stitch the first petal till middle and then add the second one.

5. You continue this way till you are satisfied with the size of your final rose.

6. Now you can start to gather the threat and carefully create the rose.

7. Sew around and fix the petals. If you like you can keep it like a rosebud or you can open it more and sew few beads in the middle. You can attache on the back a safety pin and wear it as a brooch.

Hope you enjoyed as I did!

Welcome to Fabric Flowers blog

Hello traveler,

This is a tentative of blogging and communicating with people from all over the world and sharing experience, tips, techniques on fabric flowers’ hand making process with the ones that are same passionte as I am about creating something with their own hands.

My first attempt here is to share my creations and get feedback from you about the way they look, the colours and techniques I used. What do you like most, what should be improved and at the end, if one of these flowers would be for sale which one you would like to purchase?

And not forgetting about politness, few words about me. My name is Claudia and I can define myself being an easily adaptable person: born in Romania, lived in Finland, now working in Czech Republic and then, who knows which will be the next station. I started this hobby of hand made fabirc flowers from a deep need of creating something with my hands. I am working in an IT company and everything I do it is virtual – communication, human interaction, daily tasks…

I will start posting a flower a week and I will be more than happy to get in touch with you for comments and feedback.

I kindly ask you to not use the pictures and content of this blog for publishing or profit activities without my approval.

Have a great day,
