Fabric flowers or rosettes as I call them - a quick craft to do.
They add a sweet touch to baskets and bins and boxes.
I have added them to my Prairie - Plain & Primitive baskets.
I also made me a brooch for my favorite shirt.
Start with a fabric scrap - this one was upholstery material.
You need about two feet in length.
Tear into strips of about three or four inches in width.
I do not measure - just rip away.
The more tattered the edges, the better I like the look.
Fold in half and use a running basting stitch along the folded edge.
I hand sew these.
Pull the thread to draw in the fabric and twist into a flower shape.
I overhand stitch the opening and pull the thread in tight.
Pull and plump.
Decide if you want a center.
Old buttons, beads, and pearls.
I have used rusty bolts too!
And in the time it took to write this short post, you have a fabric flower - the perfect rosette for any project.
