"Felt Rose Brooches""

Hello there Blog friends.  Thank you for calling by this little corner of Blogland.  I really hope you find something to interest you and you stay a while.  If you stay to browse please let me know by leaving a comment.  I can then pop to your Blog to see what you get up to.

Has anyone made one of my Roses yet???
These are just some of the Roses I have made for Sunday.  A friend has gone off with quite a few to try to sell them at a Coffee Morning she is having this morning. 

I am showing you Roses don`t have to be done with paper.  These look great on a parcel, tie your ribbon and fix one right in the centre, makes the bow look beautiful and an extra little gift for the recipient.  Have to say this was not my idea it was Hazel`s.  Hazel and I sell these Felt Brooches as well as our pendants.  We bag them for selling, they do not photograph well when they are in their bags you get terrible reflections off the Cellophane.

These are actually stamped and cut from Craft Felt.  People now are counting their pennies, so I use craft felt which is much cheaper.  I feel you have to use Wool Felt for Die Cutting, that can be rather expensive.  The principle for the Roses is similar to the paper ones. 
Sometimes I am left with not enough to make a dimensional Rose.  If I have enough I cut out two base layers, stuff them with all the cut "Bits" from all the Roses and Blanket Stitch them together.  Some I just cut two base layers, Blanket Stitch them without stuffing adding an embellishment on the top.

Stamp used is  from Dimension Stamps
Craft Felt from Hobbycraft Store
Brooch backs bought on eBay 
Gold Backing Card to hold the Brooch cut with a Spellbinder Die

That`s it for today
Thank you for popping in to see what`s on offer,  I really appreciate your visits

  1. Hi Patricia, I used felt for making poinsettias in the past and have made a few flowers added to cards as a little extra, that was before I realied that I should have been photographing my cards for posting on my blog. Lesson learned. Your broaches are gorgeous hope you have good sales at your fair.

  2. Good Morning Patricia,
    These are sooooo cute, you and Hazel have some very clever ideas, full of inspiration, I hope you have a great day this time at the craft fair. I am off to the NEC this morning, hoping it is not so busy as the weekend. Have a great day today.

  3. Morning Patricia.....these are lovely and they look great made in felt.


  4. Oooooh, Patricia these are lovely! Being in full 'Christmas' mode at the moment I've not made roses for a while, but you've just given the ole mojo a kick with an idea for making poinsettias with some fabric paper and a punch.
    Could you add blank mini taqs to yours with a Christmas/birthday message that people could use to put on their presents?
    Loudly applauding your ingenuity and sending best wishes for Sunday. Hugs, Buttons x

  5. Super broaches Patricia. I like the idea of adding to gift boxes. Have a good day. Christine x

  6. Morning Patricia, Loving your beautiful brooches, and also your beautiful card from yesterday, the bow was stupendous. I hope you have a great day at your fair, we have our Christmas Fayre at Church tomorrow, so I'm off to set up this afternoon and will be helping out tomorrow, I've even roped my hubby in as well ha ha.
    I'm recovering from my trip to the NEC yesterday, it was great though, didn't get to see it all because of the train times restrictions, but still managed to spend lots ha ha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  14. Hi Patricia, in answer to your question I cut my own tags tight I know but needs must! My big tags are 14.5cm x 7cm with the corners chopped off (I get 6 out of one piece of A4 card). For smaller tags there are any number of tag shapes that can be resized/printed onto card or I use one of the Crafters Companion embossing boards that has some on. Hope this helps, hugs Buttons x

  15. These are really pretty PAtricia. I love all the colours. I hope your friend has sold them for you!
