Fabric Rose Brooch - blue jacquard fabric rose broochNever discard double-sided fabric scraps, even if they are very small. You can use them to make a great rose brooch.

For this project I used scraps of a double-sided jacquard fabric with metallic and blue thread. Jacquard fabric is a type of cloth featuring an intricate pattern woven into the warp. Almost all woven fabrics will produce fraying when cut. To solve this problem, I decided to use instant glue. When this glue dries, it hardens the fabric, which not only stops the fraying, but also fixes the bend imparted to the fabric. This property is perfect not only for fixing the threads at the edges, but also for forming the curved rose petals.


Total Time: 30 Min


  • double-sided fabric scraps
  • cardboard
  • scissors
  • 1 plastic file
  • instant glue
  • 1 toothpick
  • 1 hot glue stick
  • 1 hot glue gun
  • pen/felt-tip pen
  • 1 brooch pin/safety pin


  1. Make cardboard petal templates. The digits (4, 5, 6, and 6) on each template indicates how many fabric petals you need to make using the template.
  2. Fabric Rose Brooch - templates with the number of pieces of fabric to cut
  3. Place the template on the fabric as tightly as possible (no allowances) and trace the outline.
  4. Fabric Rose Brooch - trace the template onto the fabric
  5. Cut out the required number of petals from the fabric scraps.
  6. Fabric Rose Brooch - petals cut
  7. Place one of the small petals on a plastic file and dab the fabric with instant glue. Wait a few seconds. When the fabric starts to harden, bend the fabric petal around the toothpick, giving the petal a shape. The glue will no longer stick to your fingers. Do not miss this moment, otherwise, when the fabric is completely hardened, it will be very difficult to shape the petals.

  9. Bend all the other petals in the same way as in the previous step. For large petals, bend the edges at the top as well.
  10. Fabric Rose Brooch - bent/shaped petals
  11. Now you will glue the petals together using hot glue. Glue the smallest petals together first. Then glue the larger petals, spreading them evenly around the sides. Glue the largest petals at the very end. To make the rose bloom while gluing the petals, hold them for a couple of minutes at an angle.

  13. Cut a small circle out of the fabric. Glue a pin on the back of the fabric rose, pressing a circle of fabric on the outside.

  15. Wait a little for the hot glue to harden well. If necessary, trim the edges of the petals. Your fabric rose brooch is ready.
  16. Fabric Rose Brooch - ready to wear
