Once you have nailed this easy craft you can begin decorating just about anything with them. They are a simple and great way to add a unique flair to your favorite linen bag or any accessory. Add them to a blouse or cardigan for a lovely handmade detail. You can even make flower arrangements and bouquets with them! One of my personal favorites is gluing them to a wreath and presenting it as a rustic and beautiful gift to friends. A handmade fabric rosette can be used just about everywhere I’ve found!
You should find all the materials to make these darling rosettes right in your home.
- A piece of linen fabric. (Scrap pieces work perfectly for this project.)
- A yardstick or ruler
- A needle and thread
Level of Difficulty: Beginners/Easy
Time: 5-10 minutes per rosette.
First, you need to cut a long enough strip of fabric to work with. The length and width of a standard yardstick is a good model to follow.
Fold your strip of fabric in half along the entire center. Firmly crease or pin it as you go to hold it in place.
When you reach the last bit of your piece of fabric, just tuck the end under your rosette with a pin.
Just ruffle up the petals and you are all done creating your beautiful fabric rosette!
I hope you enjoy making these rosettes as much as I do I have a pile of these rosettes that won’t stop growing because I keep hoarding all of them for myself. But they make lovely gifts, so I suggest you surprise your friends with a cute little rosette! Also, share your creations with me by sending in photos of your work. Every rosette looks different and everybody makes them a little different. I’d love to see how yours turn out!
