I love this tutorial from Tidy Mom. Rosettes are on my DIY to-do list and she makes it look so easy! It’s a great Valentine idea for friends. I’d love to get one, wouldn’t you?
I started with a 9×12 piece of red felt that I bought at Michales. Grabbed a glass that was about 3″ in diameter, and traced 6 circles on my piece of felt, then cut them out.
(you also click the picture and choose to view in a larger size for detail)
- Take one circle, fold it in half,
- then in half again.
- Hand stitch thru the bottom point enough to keep it folded.
- Then do the same with each of the circles. I just went from one to the next pulling my thread tightly to keep them all together(I just placed them randomly around each other, not in a stack…it will make sense when you’re making it, you basically want the tips sewn together). When I had all 6 pieces attached I put a few more stitches in to keep them nice and tight together.
- Next sew them onto a little pin backing (you can these at Michaels in the jewelry making section).
These were so easy and I love how they turned out! The red makes them perfect for Valentine’s Day!
You can wear them on a sweater or jacket, t-shirt, on a bag……or give as a gift!
You could even use them as embellishments on scarves, hats, or pillows – oh, you get the picture!……just sew them right on instead of pining them on!
Yummy! Who doesn’t love easy Valentine goodies?
