DIY Felt Succulent Broach



Felt Succulent Brooch

Pattern pieces can be found here.

Supplies:

1-3 colors of felt
Contrasting six strand floss
Sew on pin back

Instructions:

1. Cut out the felt according to the pattern pieces.

2. Start by sewing a running stitch around the outer edge of one of the smallest petals. When you get to the end of the edhes, keep the same needle and thread and start on the second. Continue until you have all three of the small petals sewn. Stitch all three of the petals together in the center.

3. Using the six, medium petals, start with one and stitch to the underneath side of the small cluster. Pinch the petal a bit when sewing to “gather” it a bit. Continue adding the five remaining petals in the same method moving around the cluster and layering them.

4. Tie a knot to secure and trim the floss.

5. Sew the four large petals just as you sewed the small pieces in step 2.  Arrange under the medium petals and sew to secure. Tie a knot and trim the floss.

6. Roll the felt to make the stem. Sew up the side to secure. Sew on to the base of the succulent.


7. Sew the pin back on to the succulent.

I would love to see what you make, tag me on Instagram or post your project to my Facebook page will ya?
