Proceed to magic?
1. Print A4 pattern. The brooch is 6,1*6,1 cm. Сut it out:
Transfer it and all its lines on the felt.
2. Stretch the gold twisted thread, baste it to the surface and then properly sew it on the felt:
3. Embroider another outline with Czech beads and Delica Hexagon Cut.
4. Sew the bicones according to the scheme. Purple dots indicate the Miyuki mix of Strawberry Fields.
Fix the jewellery stones with glue right in the middle and sew with a double thread (One-G here).
5. Begin to embroider the petal with sequins like this:
Embroider with any convenient thread. I used Chinese No. 40 metal 102 thread and 4mm flat LM Paris Sequins Or C2 Mat (#LM16).
The second row is embroidered with these same 4 mm sequins.
Row 3. Begin to alternate the sequins you work with and LM Paris 3 mm flat Or B2 Mat (#LM06) sequins.
Row 4. Still alternated 4 mm and 3 mm sequins.
Row 5. Use only matt golden 3 mm sequins.
Row 6. One white pearl 3 mm LM Paris 4501 (#LM37) sequin is added.
Row 7. At the end, add three pearl sequins.
6. The most difficult is to reflect the location of sequins on a different part of the petal and embroider all petals this way.
Sequins are slightly raised and shape an interesting volume.
7. Continue. Sew Swarovski on both sides from the red stones + 3 bronze beads and a 2 mm black sequin.
8. Add bridges from the Czech bronze beads and Swarovski bicones.
You can see here where the needle is inserted.
9. Decorate all petals this way. Work with a double thread but a very thin needle.
10. Fill the heart of the flower alternating Swarovski pearls of different sizes: 3 mm, 4 mm, 5 mm.
Continue to fill.
11. Make the crystal and pearl look inseparable. Pick 5 beads + 2.5 mm Golden Shadow bicone + 2 more beads and decorate the frame:
12. Fill all free spaces between the pearls and decorate the outer edge of the pearl heart.
13. Ready! Cut, retreating 0.5 mm next to the thread and flush to the beads.
14. Transfer the pattern on the cardboard, mark the side that will be close to the suede. Cut out leaving extra 2-3 mm.
15. Mark where the pin will be:
16. And make a crown if you wish:
17. Sew Czech golden beads.
18. Add crystals in frames.
19. Sew some chenille. Cut out, treat the edge like in the picture below:
20. Here's what you get:
