DIY Friday: Satin Rosette Tutorial

How To Make Satin Rosettes

What you will need:

1 candle
1 lighter
1 spool of thread
1 small sewing needle
Several seed beads in the color of your choice
And at least 4 small circles of satin sash fabric in consecutive sizes (you can make several of these flowers out of one sash)

Step 1

With the lit candle (being careful not to let the fabric actually touch the flame), melt the edges of the fabric. The more you melt, the more it will curl. I like mine curled in quite a bit, so I take my time moving around the circle. You can also move a bit quicker and just barely curl the edges and it will look more like a poppy and less like a rose.

Repeat step one for all of the fabric circles. As you do the smaller ones, it will become a bit harder and you may want to use some heat resistant tweezers or tongs of some kind.

Step 2

Stack all of the pieces one inside another and then sew them together in the center with a few stitches.

Step 3

 

Once they are securely sewn together, bring the thread up through the center so that it is back in front of your flower. And put one of your seed beads on the needle. This is where the small needle comes in handy. If it is small enough the bead will slide right over the eye of the needle and onto the thread.

Move the bead down to the center of the flower and put the needle through to the back of the flower, right next to the bead.

Repeat step three in a circle around the center of your flower until you have the desired amount of beads in the center.

Step  4

Attach to whatever you would like the flower to be on. To do this, I sew the bottom layer to the item that I would like it to be attached to. In this case, a lace headband.
