Festive Foliage Corsage Pattern


This beautiful little brooch will be as much at home on a jacket lapel as it will be decorating a bottle or handbag.

EXPERIENCE OF BRICK STITCH and READING A CHART IS ESSENTIAL for this pattern by Marlene O’Reilly. If you want to learn brick stitch or get a reminder, you can download my brick stitch technique guide for free here, or order a printed copy for a small charge to cover printing costs.

Basic instructions with diagrams, photographs, and charts are provided over 12 pages, to make the leaves in brick stitch and use wirework techniques for the pearl and bicone strands.

Your finished corsage will have a diameter of approximately 9cm (3.5 inches), but this may differ slightly according to your final assembly layout.

You can buy the full kit, including pattern and all materials for the Ivory variation here, or the Autumn variation here.
