Rosette tutorial


I found myself pinning tons of flower and rosette tutorials and finally told myself "Stop pinning! Start making!". I ended up finding this video and it was so informative and so easy. I wanted to be able to make cute rosettes without having to bust out a needle and thread. Here are some of the ones I've made




My video tutorial

(sorry the video is so small, is there a way to make it larger?)

Here are some pictures to guide you through the tutorial

1. All you need is fabric, fabric scissors and a glue gun. The thinner the fabric, the easier it will be to make the rosette.

(Fanning is my maiden name)

2. Cut 1.5 inch wide strips of the fabric. The longer the length, the bigger the rosette will be. I made mini rosettes and cut the fabric about 12 inches long.


3. Fold one end of the fabric hot dog style in half and in half again. Secure with a tiny hot glue dot. Roll the first 2-3 inches of the fabric (that is folded) to make the bud of the rosette. Secure with hot glue.


4. Now you can get creative. Fold and twist the fabric around the bud and secure with hot glue every 2-3 folds (watching the video will help you understand better). Once you are out of fabric, hot glue the tail end of the fabric to the back of the rosette.


Here are my finished products


 I am hosting a bridal shower on Saturday and thought the rosettes would make great bows


You can use rosettes for so many different things! Here are some ideas:

-Headbands
-Necklaces
-Pins
-Bags/pouches
-Gift wrapping

Question for the day: have you actually made any of the crafts you've pinned on Pinterest?? Or are you a serial pinner who hasn't made anything?

Nope, I have not actually made any of the crafts that I've pinned. Is that bad? Are we pinterest friends? I feel like we're not, but maybe we are... who knows! Thank goodness we're almost half way through this week. Clearly, my mind is all wonky!
