You have probably seen fabric flowers and fabric rosettes taking over the crafting world lately. It makes sense though, since they are so versatile and cute. You have make them in any color with fabric you have on hand, to match any outfit. This project is perfect if you’ve never made a fabric rosette before, and perfect for summer since I always tend to have my hair up when it’s hot outside.
Glue gun and Glue
Rotary cutter and Mat (Optional)
Gather your materials and cut the fabric strip that will become your rosette. I used my rotary cutter and mat, since it is much easier this way, however you can use scissors as well. My strip of fabric measured 37″ long and 3/4″ wide. The length of your strip will determine the diameter of your rosette while the width will determine it’s thickness.
Next, continue wrapping the folded fabric around and around, twisting the fabric every now and then. This takes some practice. You’ll get used to working the fabric around itself and twisting and holding it all in place at the same time.
To attach to the elastic, cut out two circles from a piece of felt. I just traced a lid to a bottle of spices from my cupboards. Search around to see what you could trace that would just fit on the back of your rosette. My circles ended up being about 1 1/4″ in diameter.
