Fabric Lapel Pin

Using fabric cut away from my granddaughter’s prom dress (I shortened it 3 and 1/2 inches), I made a rosette lapel pin for her date.

There are great tutorials on the web for how to flame the edges of fabric circles with a tea light that melt and curl them a bit.

Then just stack six or seven, and stitch together with a glass pearl center.

I added two silk leaves and glued on a pin back. Light touches of gold acrylic paint here and there around the petals completed the look.

She’s delighted to give him something special for the prom.

You can also use the extra wide satin ribbon to make beautiful brooches for women.

  • Such a neat idea, Lynda! And it’s nice for her date to have a memento to keep from the prom. A lovely way to use the fabric leftover from the dress. Thanks for sharing this tip! 🙂

    So beautiful Lynda! Nice sentiment too. I’m going to look around YouTube for some of the fabric videos and see if I can give the technique a try.

    Hi, Rita…I wrote a blog post about these fabric flowers and added three linked tutorials if you’d like to try this out at home. All have the same basic techniques. Have fun!
