Handmade Wednesday: Fabric Rosette’s

I have been in love with fabric rosette’s for ages.  And I just recently decided, after spending hours upon hours at Dear Lizzy, that I wanted to make some myself. I made a few just for fun and to see exactly how it’s done and then I put them on different things to see what exactly I wanted to use them for.  Here’s where I started:

This is a headband made out of… yes, you guessed it…. nylons.  Those pesky things you pull up your legs.  Oh! You don’t use them anymore? But you have tons of them just sitting around in your closet?  Well, pull ’em out and make a headband.  I did a long time ago and I love it.  But I wanted to see if I added something fun to them, if I would wear them in a more fashionable setting.  I think yes.

I have also used these in my scrapbooking adventures, like so:

But you can use fabric rosette’s in almost anything.  On a bookmark, hot glued to a vase, sewn on the collar of a t-shirt as Dear Lizzy has done (seriously, just look at her picture!) or so many other options.  I am going to start playing around with them all over my house.  I’m sure Movie Star will love it…..

Now, what you’ve been waiting for…. the tutorial! I have two for you.  This one from Mamamonster is easier and this one from Lillyella is still easy but takes more time.

What do you use your fabric rosette’s for?
