Monster Brooch DIY Project From Blythe Church
Blythe Church created this adorable monster brooch project for PrintCutSew!
Materials needed: Thick felt or fleece for the monster body, white craft felt for the teeth and red craft felt for the mouth, 1/4″ eyelets for the eyes or small buttons if you prefer, brooch pin, needle and thread.
Step 1: Begin by making a sketch of the monster you would like to make, making sure to draw it the exact size that you would like and then cut it out.
Step 2: Using your drawing as a pattern cut out 2 monsters from the thick felt/fleece. One of these will be the front of the pin and the other the back.
Step 3: Choose which monster piece will be the front and cut a small circle at the centre to be a mouth. Using the directions on your package of eyelets attach eyelets in place for eyes. Alternatively you could sew small buttons on for eyes. Cut out 2 rows of teeth from white felt. Holding teeth in place behind the monster’s mouth sew into place. Cut small piece of red felt a little larger than mouth. When completed sew red felt mouth behind teeth.
Step 4: Sew brooch pin to top of monster piece that will be the back of the brooch. If your monster is asymmetrical be sure sew brooch to correct side.
Step 5: Sew back and front pieces together.
What a great project! Don’t forget to send in pictures of your own incarnatons of the monster brooch project!
