Fancy Fabric Corsage Project

Fancy Fabric CorsageBrighten up your outfit with this stylish fabric corsage brooch by Kirsty Neale. Pin to a scarf, a bag or a coat… or why not make a number of corsages in various colours to match different items — they’re super easy to make!

You Will Need:



1. Using the petal template, draw around it onto the reverse of your chosen fabrics. You will need 8–10 petal pieces for your fancy fabric corsage. Cut out.

2. Scrunch each petal piece between your hands to roughen and deliberately fray the edges. Layer the pieces one on top of the other, staggering the petals as you go.

3. To fix them together, draw a small circle onto the back of the petal stack. Sew a line of simple running stitches around the circle. Pull the thread ends together, gathering up the fabric very slightly. Knot to secure.

4. Use your hands to ‘fluff’ the gently gathered petals and give your corsage shape.

5. Fix a decorative brad on top of the petals to make a flower centre.

6. To finish off, cut a circle of felt and stitch to the back of your corsage. Sew a brooch back onto the felt.
