{Fabric Rose} Headband Tutorial

Okay, I thought I'd post something a little different today.  One of my daily reads is a gal, Linda @ Craftaholics Anonymous.  I am a hopeless craftaholic too and I just love to read all about her adventures in crafts.  Head on over there when you get the chance, I'm sure you'll love her site.  She's got {great} ideas and tutorials.  

Speaking of tutorials, I wanted to showcase one of her tutorials I just love, her fabric rosette headband tutorial!  {and Emme does too}!  And...you don't just have to put these little cuties on a headband.  What about a menu board for an adorable {girls birthday party}, a chalk board or even a picture frame.  Too cute!

Here's what you'll need:

And here's how to do it:

1. fold your fabric in half so that it measures 1.5″ x 22″. tie a knot in one end.
*Don’t pull tight. Leave it kind of loose.

2. Tuck under the short ends of the knot.

3. Take your fabric next to the knot and twist it up and over the knot.I twist from the bottom up.

4. Twist the fabric around the knot to create petals. *TIPS: Always twist in the same direction that you started with!

5. Continue twisting the fabric around.
*TIP: If using 1 sided fabric, make sure to keep your fabric folded in half prior to twisting to hide the wrong side of the fabric.

6. When your rosette reaches the desired size, snip off the remaining fabric.
*TIP: For a larger rosette, use a longer piece of fabric. ex: 3″x28″

7. Twist and tuck under the end of the fabric. Hot glue in place.

8. Hot glue your fabric or felt circle on the back of the rosette. Be sure to cover the ends of the fabric! Trim your circle if needed so that it doesn’t show when looking at the right side of the rosette.

9. You’re done! Simply attach your rosette to a pin, hair clip, frame, or whatever you want to adorn! You can also add rhinestones, button, pearls, etc to the center of the rosettes for a different look.

Thanks Linda for such a great tutorial!  

Until next time,
Emme & Me
