My friend loves embellishment and I always make her broaches...
This time i decided to hand make her a rosette...
I started off with two straight pieces of fabric. I slip stitch and rouched up both pieces of fabric, but with the none stripey piece I over locked one side first. I didnt do this to the other fabric as I think it looks quite nice when it freys over time.
Then I sewd one piece ontop of the other and sewed some buttons into the centre.
I added a strip of fabric folded over and secured that to the back. Then to cover up th sewing mess and to make it a little more durable I put a circle of grey felt on the back. Then a small strip of grey felt to attach the pin.
and there's me modelling it! argh...I should have put some make up on first!...but you get the idea!
A pretty simple for lovely gift.
