This Leather Dahlia Tutorial is a perfect tutorial for beginners in leather flower making. You will find it particularly useful if you want to learn how to use flat stiffened leather in your flower design.
A firm garden favourite, dahlias come in incredible colours and forms; enough for everyone to find their best-loved. I was so enchanted with dahlias that created a whole leather dahlia collection back in Autumn 2015.
Today I am offering you to make a dahlia brooch that is close to formal decorative dahlias. Its flower is the archetypal dahlia form with rather blunt petals that are rolled inward at the base.
The step-by-step detailed photo tutorial reveals the secrets of unique dahlia petals, made with leather and shaped to perfection. You will be able to create a wearable brooch with a leather dahlia and hopefully many more wonderful pieces with this minimalist easy wearing flower.
With more than 100 pictures explaining in detail the whole process of creating your own leather dahlia brooch, the 72 page pdf tutorial (no hard copy is available) will unlock the secret of the beautiful bloom. Dahlia flowers can be used in jewellery, hat trims, leather handbag decor, as hairpieces and other accessories. I have included the pattern which you can enlarge or reduce in size depending on your project. The photo tutorial comes with an additional video that demonstrates most tricky points for you.
To create the leather dahlia flower you will require some specialist millinery tools. Please refer to the photo which shows which tools (or similar) you will need for this tutorial. At the moment you can purchase a set of 2 extra narrow millinery tools that can be used for shaping the petals and the calyx in this tutorial. Please click here for more information.
If you have not got millinery tools please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be able to recommend where to get a set from.
We are pleased to be able to offer leather kits for this tutorial. Please find more information on leather dahlia flower brooch kits at https://presentperfectcreations.com/product/diy-leather-kit-for-making-a-leather-dahlia-brooch/

You do need some tools for this one but minimal. I’m new to flower making and struggled a bit to do parts, but it still turned out beautifully. The instructions were very clear, and the photos and video were super helpful.
