Rolled Rosettes

I have always received so many requests on how to make many of the flowers I have done, so I am going to do a few tutorials on how to make them now. I’m starting with the rolled rosette.

They are super easy to make. I usually save my scraps for these and sit and make them while the little one sleeps and I want something quiet to work on.

You can embellish clothing with them, decorate wrapped presents with them, make a ring/bib necklace/earrings/headbands with them, and so much more. It’s nice to have a few laying around and they are a scrapbuster for sure.

Start with a long strip of fabric. The larger the width and length, the bigger it will be.

Tie a knot on one end.

Then begin to wrap the fabric in a circle around the knot, twisting randomly. Now, you can glue it while doing this with a hot glue gun if you like,

but I like to create my whole rosette and then sew together.

And that is it. Glue or sew them onto something. Everyone’s will look a bit different, but it’s the same concept.

    Love these! I have lots of fabric strips that I used to crochet with. Your idea is perfect for these! Love your daughter as model, she is really becoming a beauty! Hugs!

    if you need more strength to the rosette, you can use a pipe cleaner. just hot glue the tip of fabric to the pipe cleaner and twist fabric around it, hot glue as you go. This has saved many rosettes from being completely unraveled by my toddler.

    ok so i am rolling my first flower and it looks really cute, and i want to sew it instead of glue it because it would be my first hand sewing project, how do i do it? just start anywhere?

    Yup, you pretty much start anywhere :) I usually tend to start at the middle and just stitch around in circles until at the edges.
