Webster’s Pages…

Jul 6, 2009

I am so hap­py, I can final­ly tell you all my news… I am now part of the Web­ster’s Pages Design Team. I was lucky enough to have Web­ster’s Pages as a book spon­sor and now get to be part of their amaz­ing team. If you are not famil­iar with their prod­ucts you real­ly need to check them out here. Their prod­ucts, col­or schemes and designs are incred­i­ble.

Brooch

Today, I cre­at­ed this brooch using the trim and lace they debuted at CHA‑W 2009. It is their Ivory and Cream, Coco Ruf­fle, Spring Green Lat­tice and Turquoise Petite. I am going to attach this to either a purse or t‑shirt… not sure which one just yet.

Vin­tage Brooch Tuto­r­i­al

  1. Cut a piece of Ivory and Cream lace to 12″ in length. Thread a sewing nee­dle with three strands of embroi­dery floss, start­ing at one edge of the lace begin gath­er­ing at one end all the way to the oppo­site end, tight­ly pull the ends togeth­er, dou­ble knot and trim the tips of the lace off using scis­sors. Now cut towards the cen­ter of the lace approx­i­mate­ly 1.25″ leav­ing a space between each cut approx­i­mate­ly 1.25″ apart.
  2. Cut a piece of Spring Green Lat­tice to 12″ in length. Thread a sewing nee­dle with three strands of embroi­dery floss, start­ing at one edge of the lace begin gath­er­ing at one end all the way to the oppo­site end, pull the ends togeth­er you do not want to pull the ends too tight as you want the flower to be approx­i­mate­ly 2.5″ in diam­e­ter, dou­ble knot the embroi­dery floss to secure the ends.
  3. Cut a piece of Coco Ruf­fle to approx­i­mate­ly 12″ in length. Cre­ate a cir­cle by care­ful­ly wrap­ping the trim in a clock­wise direc­tion. The diam­e­ter of the cir­cle needs to be approx­i­mate­ly 2″.
  4. Attach the Spring Lat­tice Trim on top of the Ivory and Cream using a strong liq­uid adhe­sive. I use Fab­ric Tac. Attach the Coco Ruf­fle cir­cle on top of the Spring Lat­tice Cir­cle using the same liq­uid adhe­sive. Then using a glue gun attach a vin­tage rhine­stone in the cen­ter of the Coco Ruf­fle.
  5. Cut a cir­cle from felt mea­sur­ing approx­i­mate­ly 2″, cut a 6″ strip of Turquoise Petite, fold in half, using Fab­ric Tac attach the trim to the felt cir­cle, then attach the felt cir­cle to the cen­ter back por­tion of your brooch.
  6. Using a hot glue gun attach a pin back to the cen­ter of the felt cir­cle.

I hope you try mak­ing one… it is super easy to cre­ate and has lots of dif­fer­ent uses.
