Fabric Twist Rosette

Fabric Rosettes!

1. Cut a strip of fabric approx 12 inches long. The width of the strip with determine how “fat” your rosette is. My strip was about 1 inch wide.

2. Tie a knot at one end.

3. Begin by twisting the strip of fabric a few times, then begin wrapping it around the knot.

4. As your wrapping the twisted strip, place a small dot of glue on the rosette

5. Once you have the size you like, snip the rest of the fabric off and glue to the underside of the rosette.

Add to a headband, or bobby pins, a pin for a broach, or any other place a little flower could accent!

Stephanie! I’m so glad I’m not the only one with this problem! I have to literally stretch the headbands apart so that they barely set on my head or they end up giving me a headache! I DO think it’s the kind I use though. I use the skinny metal ones. I’m going to try the ones that are lined with fabric, maybe those won’t hurt so bad!

Love the tutorial for this! They’re so much easier to make than I thought, and I can use scrap fabrics for them. Thanks for sharing!
