Floral Fabrik Brooch: Rose-bud

>> Sunday, 21 October 2012

Read this in Bahasa

The first time I saw this so called Rose-bud was months ago, and someone was wearing it as a brooch on her shoulder, clasping one tip of her head-cover to her left shoulder dress. Each layers were delicately  formed - the perfect color, the uneven-and-natural-look of each "petals. Soon I learnt that it was called the Rose-bud
(photo: I use fabric satin: 2 | 2.5 |3 inch)

I finally had the opportunity to see this live, displayed on a shelf in a shopping mall. There are many sizes of them and each has different heights and angles. I told myself that one day, I will re-invent the design to give a better look.

It finally happened only after 2 months. There are numerous tutorials out there, which described the different ways of doing it, most are in forms of visuals, and without telling how it measures - the length and wide. There always this magical, grey-area step before you can really form each bud completely, and it really took me a while to finally figure it out successfully. Soon, I learn how to make each look schematic or natural. I even tried it using different fabrics and ribbons.

I use satin ribbon - the stiff texture gives sharp edging. A lot easier to hold and make it flat
I use satin fabric (the best quality), gives a more natural edging look and is a lot delicate to hold.

I tried it using another quality of satin - not so bad at all 

I used jersey - the stripes are nice too

I arranged each petals tighter

Slightly arranged it with "spaces" (loose) gives a natural look. I used hand-dye satin, red and yellow combined
