|Then ignore the dry old lady hands… and twist your fabric strip.|
|Then begin to wind the fabric around each other as you twist. The twists of folds of the fabric create the appearance of petals as you go along.|
|Keep twisting and wrapping until you are done with the strip.|
|Then using a needle and thread sew the flap at the end in place.|
|Then place the rosette flat on the surface you are sewing it to, in this case some felt. Secure the rosette in place by sewing it in random places until the whole thing is secure.|
|For this project I sewed three rosettes down to the felt and sewed some feathers under one of them.|
|Then I cut off the extra felt around the rosettes. I left a spot in between two of the rosettes for the brooch to pin in place.|
|Then I made two smaller rosettes and sewed them on top of the other rosettes to just build up the design a little.|
|That’s it then the brooch pins in place.|
|(sorry for the blurry picture)
The brooch then attaches to anything, but now with a little more pizazz.
|The hint of bling really completed the dress.
