DIY Fabric Rosettes and More!

Have you been like me and just loved on those adorable fabric roses and wanted to make some of your own? Well today wait no longer! I have no idea if this is the correct way but it worked for me and so I will pass it on to you. FYI ...you will need these lil darlings for our next project too~
Cut some strips of fabric about the width and length of your yard stick.
Fold it over and pin along your strip of fabric.
After you have your strip all set start at the end and roll it up snug. As you go you will want to run your needle and thread into the center to hold your rosette together.
As you go round and round with your strip just run your needle into the center ....repeat as you roll ...
Dont worry about your under side..no one will see it so it can be a bit messy.
As you come to the end you will start getting looser and looser with your folds.
I even allowed the fold of fabric to open and fray a bit.
At the end of your strip just fold over the end and sew to the bottom of your rosette
You can see here how I started out snug in the middle and by the end I had nice loose folds.
I dont think there is ever a right or wrong way when it's made from the heart~
      I will be using these rosettes real soon....stay tuned!    Ps..sweet commentors...please excuse my absence in returning comments these last few days. On top of the upcoming show my daughter decided it would be a nice time to get sick. So instead of blogging I have been loving on my sweet one. Im sure you understand and know that I will get right back to you as soon as I can. Miss chatting with all of you~

  11. Hi Susie,
    Thanks for the great tutorial! I have really been admiring those lately too.
    Just got over my daughter being sick for the last week. I hope your daughter recovers quickly & you be sure to take lots of 'airborne' if you haven't heard of it~ it's awesome...developed by a school teacher & made to build up your immune system so you can fight off stuff when people around you are sick. IT WORKS! We always have it on hand & start drinking it (it's little fizzy tablets like alka seltzer) as soon as someone gets a cold or feels a soar throat coming on etc...they sell it at most grocery stores. ok that's my plug..:)
    Love your site!

  17. Completely understand the need for cuddles, from mommy to daughter and daughter to mommy!

    We are in Branson, this week. Just leaving for home, this morning. Had a fun time, in the rain and cold! Sun is supposed to shine today.:-)

    I love the rosette and would love to have one for my denim jacket. I may just have to dig out my burlap scraps. Way back in the stoneage...1960's, I made flowers from burlap. Wish I could remember how to do them. It involved pulling the threads and fringing the flower. I may have to google and see if I can find a pattern. I was in a University of MO Extension Club. I don't think they even have those anymore. That was way back when there were more women at home, I think. I learned quite a few crafty things during those years. The burlap flowers were very delicate looking.

  31. I wish I had the time to make these cute things. This move has done me in. I am so tired that I am skipping Christmas this year. Might surprise my son and let him go to Texas to spend it with his cousins. I can't wait until I am rested and set up in the house to have time to be crafty.
