Step by step:

To make this brooch you need to know how to make a rolled flower with t-shirt yarn, the only change is that instead of only rolling the yarn to achieve the rosette you have to incorporate the zipper.

To do this, cut a strip of yarn about 15 or 20 cm (depending on the length of the zipper) and place it next to the zipper. The edges of the yarn must coincide with the toothed edge of the zipper.

Start rolling up the yarn and the zipper, you can join them with glue or make some stitches.

Give as many turns as you think necessary until you achieve the size you want for the brooch.

Trim off any excess zipper fabric left at the bottom (the non-serrated part).

Glue the rosette onto a brooch base or cut out a circle of felt and place it on the back of the rosette. Add the hook for the brooch.
