I have piles of leftover material from all the different things I’ve made, so I thought it was a good time to make some fabric rosettes. I’ve used them to make crowns and belts before, but this time I made a quick and easy rosette headband for Annabel!
Cut your fabric into strips. The outermost color should be 16-inches long by 1.5-inches wide, the middle color should be 13-inches long by 1.25-inches wide, and the top color should be 10-inches long by 1-inch wide.
Sew a long, loose line with your needle and thread with nice, big stitches. Once you reach the end, pull on the thread so the material starts to gather and bunch.
Turn the fabric onto itself until it makes a little rosette. Then use the excess thread and a needle to sew the rosette together.
Repeat these steps with the other strips until you have three rosettes of varying sizes.
Take your glue gun and glue the rosettes onto each other.
Glue the rosette onto the headband/fold over elastic (my FOE headband tutorial is here).
Glue a small square of matching fabric over the spot where you attached the rosette to the headband. This will make it extra-secure and more comfortable to wear.
Annabel says she’s going to wear it to her school egg hunt, so I think that’s a pretty good endorsement.
Any questions, let me know! Have fun!
