Who doesn't love a little fabric rosette?? They have endless uses in home decor and fashion and are thankfully VERY easy to make. After posting my lamp yesterday, I had a bunch of requests for a tutorial on how to make them. They are very simple, but it is easier if you see the process in action, so my friend Carolyn and I whipped up a little video this morning while we made them. Here are some photo steps, and then the video is at the end so you can tie it all together.
Here is what you need:
Glue gun, glue stick, long strip of fabric. It can be any length or width. Use what you have! Old mens shirts work great. Any scrap will do. The longer it is, the larger it will be.
Once you find your fabric, rip it into a strip. You don't have to rip it, but I like the frayed edges.
Now make a knot at the end of the fabric. This is going to be the center of your rose.
See how we are twisting the fabric, then gluing the twist to the side of the knot?
