Tutorial: How to Make a Rosette


I'm sewing several bag gift sets right now.  When I get tired of making bags and need to switch it up I've been making FLOWERS!!  Rosettes (Betz White inspired), peonies, and mums. They're so fun to put on a pin or a clippy. 

 
To make the leaves cut out several sizes and shapes of leaves.  I really liked the look of the non-uniform leaves.


Sew them down the middle. 

Pinch the bottom in half and then sew them at a diagonal.  This gives the leaves a nice little curl.


Snip them apart and the leaves are ready.  I liked positioning them by pinning them together before adding the flower. 

To make the flowers, cut a circle.  You don't have to worry about cutting a perfect circle.  It think they look better when they're not perfect. 

Cut the circle into a swirl.  Vary the width of the cut all the way to the center.  Having thick and thin parts gives your flower more depth. 

Lots o flowers!!

 Starting outside and working your way in, start rolling the flower. 

When you get to the end, fold the circle portion back on to the flower and glue. 
 
  
Look at all of the yummy flower goodness!!!



And the last step... hot glue the flower on to your leaves. 
 
And here it is in my hair... so fun!!  :o)
