Red Brooch

I bought a red skirt and there was a problem with what to wear it. Nobody argues that the perfect combination is red with black. But things in the black gamut look depressing and not very elegant. Therefore, I had the idea to "revive" a dark blouse with the help of a beautiful brooch. It was impossible to find a suitable option in the store, so I took all the material of red color out of my “creative” box and created an extraordinary decoration with my own hands. It is not necessary to use certain stencils or patterns, in this matter it is important to listen to inner desires and rely on your taste. For work, take such materials (all of which should be exactly red): - knitting threads ; - hook; - sewing thread and needle; - ribbons, sequins, openwork, tulle; - beads; - PVA glue; - scissors;
- pin (or special clip for brooches).
 Red brooch
First you need a crochet o tie a round base for brooches. We collect three air loops, we connect them into a ring and begin to knit in a spiral pattern "column without nakida."The finished round base should be about 4.5 cm in diameter. Instead, you can use a piece of cloth (dense), cut in the shape of a circle.  Red brooch
Then take the red ribbon (1 cm wide), cut off four equal segments. Each of them should be about 15 cm long. We fold the ribbon in the shape of “eight”, the ends are connected in the center, and sewed to the base. So you need to sew all 4 ribbons crosswise. Here's what happens at this stage.  Red brooch Now we take an openwork braid and form the top in the form of an accordion. Thread sew to the base. You can sheathe around the perimeter, but the finish looks nice on one side. That's the way it looks on the photo.

 Red brooch It remains only to paste a few beads in the center of the brooch. See for yourself how much will fit on the workpiece. If the beads are large, then three is enough, and if they are small, then 5-7 pieces will be needed. And from the empty side of the blank we fix three red feathers (7 cm long).It turns out a gentle brooch in scarlet color.

The work is so fascinating that I also wanted to make a decoration in black colors for a pink blouse. For the black brooch, I tied the same base as for the red one. From tulle made two big roses, and one smaller. Three black ribbons (1 cm wide) were sewn from below, and black feathers (9 cm long) secured the base around the perimeter. The brooch in the black gamut turned out to be equally attractive and elegant.

It only remains on the opposite side to fasten a pin or glue a special clip with which the decorations will be attached to clothes .

For this the same principle you can sew brooches for clothes of any color. If you take a multi-colored material, then the resulting decoration can be worn with bright clothes of any shades. The size of the brooch depends on the size of the base.
