I recently took a workshop where I learned to make Cocardes (or Cockades.) It is a traditional ribbon working technique. I'm excited to be able to offer them to you in my shop now.
I made this cocarde (or cockade) from soft pink Petersham grosgrain ribbon. This type of ribbon is difficult to find. I made a ruffle of ecru lace surrounding a coordinating fabric covered button for the center.
This piece is 4" wide (10 cm) across. I backed it with rose colored wool blend felt and sewed a goldtone bar pin on the back.
This fabric brooch is very lightweight, so it won't sag on even a lighter fabric. It also makes it easy to ship as a gift for Mom or your best friend.
Your flower will be shipped in a sturdy box via USPS First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation (confirmation is available to U.S. addresses only.) Expedited shipping available, please inquire for pricing.
