Bow Tutorial #2- Rosettes

Yay for bow tutorial #2!!  The ones that I am going to show you how to do are called rosettes.  They are also super easy to make and do not require a sewing maching (YAY).

Here is what you will need:
Fabric- the longer the fabric, the bigger the rosette will be.  My fabric was about 11 in. long
Felt square
Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
Alligater clip or hair clip of choice (head band)

This is what you can make....ahhhh smiles

Take your fabric that you can get at Walmart for $1.00 and open it up.  Cut a 1 1/2 inch wide strip long-ways from the fabric. 
Cut a 2 inch wide circle from the felt.  It does not have to be perfect, just freehand it.  This will be the piece that you glue the fabric to.


Put a dot of hot glue in the center of the felt and push one of the ends of the fabric into the glue and wait for it to secure.  Using your fingers, twist the fabric.  Using the hot glue, secure the fabric as you twist around the center fabric piece until you have no more fabric left.


It should look like this.

Or like these.


Secure an alligater clip on the back of just one or you can  glue three rosettes together and glue one alligater clip on.

It will look like this if you would like to put three together.  Then you can clip the rosettes onto any elastic head band.  If you choose to use only one rosette, you can put a clip on the back and clip directly into hair.  There are so many ways to do this and so many color combinations.  Just have fun doing it!

Don't you just see all the things that you can use these on?
