La Vie En Rosettes

I was simply admiring a friend’s necklace a few weeks ago, when suddenly I was struck by the endless possibilities of fabric rosettes. I tried my hand at a few at last Saturday’s Unfinished Projects Party. Here is some of the inspiration I’ve been enjoying.

Scientific Seamstress’ blog posted this beautiful Frayed Rosette Bib Necklace Tutorial.

Contributing author, Sis Boom Fabrics offeres free downloadable patters.  I downloaded their rosette tutorial to make these beautiful frayed rosettes.

Some more inspiration…

Girls Night Out Rosette Bib Necklace by BejeweledBespoke’s Etsy shop

These images are from Little Birdie Secrets blog fabric rosette tutorial. I’m using a blend of her technique with the Sis Boom Fabrics method to make my own. You should see my craft room! It is covered with strips of fabric from anything I could get my hands on. My husband is lucky I didn’t start fraying his pjs in his sleep!

These rosette-inspired accessories called Happy Little Lovelies come from Sweet Apple 30’s Etsy shop. Necklaces, headbands, rings…. I’m experimenting with dressing up some old slip-ons and tote bags too! The possibilities are endless with these rosettes. And, she lives right here in Charlotte! Oh, please lets be friends!

Its a race to the finish with Christmas being only…. gulp…. four days away! I like going the handmade route on special occasions, but cutting it this close, I’m burning the midnight oil to get it all done. I will post some pictures of the finished products when I’m through.

Have you made anything special this holiday? Send me your project ideas. I’d love to see what you’ve been up to!
