The boho style is close to many. And one of its features are indispensable accessories - bags, belts, necklaces and brooches. Today we have found for you a master class by Irina Novikova. You can use absolutely any materials at hand to create a brooch. You will have to buy only a pin for a fastener. And everything else will surely be found in the storerooms of any needlewoman and not even a needlewoman!
- a strip of cotton fabric 4 cm wide and 80 cm long;
- the remains of tulle;
- strong threads;
- different beads;
- metal fittings in the form of leaves;
- glue "Moment".
My sundress has come into complete disrepair, just in the boho style. Well, the Japanese people are extremely economical: the kimono is worn out - no one will throw it away! And they dispose of it usefully, they create all kinds of kinusaiga-style paintings. Well done! Are we worse? I cut my sundress into shreds. I will sew a boho bag from it. And there was only one strip left, neither here nor there … So I decided to use it to create a brooch for this master class.
I cut a circle out of felt and make a cut.
I sew this cut in the manner of a Vietnamese hat (now not only Japanese, but also Vietnamese trends have gone into action?
Fold my strip of fabric in half lengthwise and sew to the "hat" in the center, securing at the corners.
Then I turn the strip in this way and sew again.
It turns out the first "petal". I turn it the same way next time.
And now the first circle around the center is ready.
We continue to turn the strip of fabric in this way, retreating with each "turn" further and further from the center.
At a certain stage, we already stop rolling the strip. You yourself will sense it when such a moment has come. And we continue to sew in the same way, but with a single strip, until the strip at the edges protrudes beyond the felt by about a centimeter.
Now cut off the excess strip.
Turn it over to the wrong side.
And we carefully hem all the protruding parts of the fabric strip, like this.
Let's start decorating the rose. This requires beads.
You can, of course, be limited to one color and size, but it seemed too boring to me. And boho is a fun style!
When the center is full, cut out a piece of felt slightly larger than the diameter of the rose.
No wonder my spare parts from the future brooch lie on the tulle, no wonder? From her, I cut off the strips with which I will sheathe the felt-backing for the rose. If there is no unnecessary tulle, do not you need to shred existing curtains in an inconspicuous place? You can replace it with a piece of guipure, any lace, burlap, satin ribbon, etc.
I sewed it in such a free style and completely asymmetrical. Boho, of course, also respects symmetry, but more asymmetry?
Trying on a rose.
Now I take out my stocks of metal leaves.
I sew them on.
Trying on a rose again.
You can sew on! I will sew it, adding additional small beads to the center.
But then our center will sink inward. I shouldn't have sewed a Vietnamese hat! Therefore, I take synthetic fluff.
I lift the rose and put the synthetic fluff into the dome of the "hat" from the inside.
Now you can safely sew on the center by adding beads! I could have stopped at this, but I decided to indulge in excesses. I started making buds or berries from cat's eye beads. I pick up an elongated large bead, then a small round bead, pass the needle through the large bead back into the fabric. Thus, a small bead serves as a stopper and, in combination, a pimp of a berry or a bud?
I also sew on small flowers.
I fix them in a similar way, typing a flower, a large pearl bead, a small bead on the needle, and passing the needle through the large bead and flower, bypassing the small one.
Now I will sew on the fringe. I insert the needle under the rose. The edges of the rose have not yet been sewn! I collect the required number of beads, a large bead and a small bead.
And in the same way as I sewed on "berries", without inserting the needle into the extreme small bead, I insert it into all the others and into the fabric.
Thus, I sew on the entire fringe.
I, unable to control myself, sewed on a few more beads of the tiger's eye and agate? And with small inconspicuous stitches I fix the rose around the perimeter. Then I turn the brooch over. I cut out a circle from cardboard, slightly less than the diameter of the felt. It is needed in order to align and seal the backdrop. I glue this circle with glue for a moment.
Then I cut a circle out of leather, already a couple of millimeters more felt. I insert a pin into it and also glue it in a moment.
For reliability, I'm stitching around the perimeter.
So the boho brooch is ready!
