Rolled Fabric Flower Tutorial

Pin It

So last week, I showed you a few more of my projects from my 85 cents scraps.  Now I will show you the final projects I created with the scraps left over!  These are NO-SEW projects!  (P.S.  Don't miss your chance to be featured for YOUR no-sew projects at the bottom of the post!)

The first is one of my favorites of the bunch and you saw it when I first introduced this houndstooth project HERE.  It is a very simple wrap bracelet created by making bias tape from a strip of fabric left over.  I could have sewn the bias tape, but I just used a hot glue gun to make the sides, wrapped it around to fit my wrist and voila - a new accessory!


With the remainder of the scraps I made fabric rosettes.  
Surely you have seen these everywhere, but in case you are new to the train...here is a simple how to!

Cut a scrap into a square...no need for perfection, but it needs to be more square than rectangle.

Now simply use fabric scissors, start at the outside edge and create a curly cue.

Start rolling with the ugly outside edge.  You want to save the nice inner circle for the end.
1.  Roll the ugly outside part into the middle of the flower.

2. Keep wrapping around and around until the petals start to have a nice curled edge.

3.  Every once in awhile press the flower down on the front to even out the layers.

4. Tuck that perfect end piece onto the back with a dab of hot glue to cover up the mess.

...and all together now...

1.  Roll the ugly outside part into the middle of the flower.
2. Keep wrapping around and around until the petals start to have a nice curled edge.
3. I press down on the front every once in awhile to make sure the rose is tight and compact.
4. Tuck that perfect end piece onto the back with a dab of hot glue to cover up the mess.
5. Attach your rosette to a pin, hot glue it on something, sew it on whatever...endless uses for these little girls!
Well worth 85 cents, right!

Now it is your turn!   
Go find something cute in your closet or at a thrift store that you can't wear, 
but you can turn into a bunch of fun new accessories!  
Upload your project to the POOL 
and you might be featured here at the Nest for All Seasons!
