Handmade Fabric Rosette

Tutorial on How to Make Fabric Rosette

I made this rosette hairband as a birthday gift to my friend’s daughter. And she was quite surprise to find out I made it myself. It’s actually done after many trial and error sessions, and here I’m sharing with you as Free Tutorial. The size of the rosette shown above is about 2″ diameter each. You’re free to try it out and find tune it to your liking. Happy crafting!

What You’ll Need:

  1. Strip of Fabric 2″ width by 39″ length (you can have it wider or shorter, try it out to see the difference)
  2. Needle and Thread (choose the thread close the color-toned of your fabric)
  3. Rhinestone Button
  4. Metal Hairband (you can check-out your local craft store and get any blank/plain hairband)
  5. Hot Glue Gun
  6. 2 pieces of 2″ x 2″ white colour felt
  7. Scissor

      I used indian dupioni silk fabric, purchased by the yard and cut to the required width. It’s quite an expensive fabric, but I like the shine and elegant look of the fabric. You could use any type of fabric, but I would suggest to not to use ‘slippery’ fabric, it’ll be very hard to control the twisting.

    Your rosettes are so pretty. I tied doing this, but what I can’t figure out is… yours don’t show raw edges on the petals. I don’t see how you did that. Can you help me understand? thank you so much for sharing!

    I use 2″ width fabric ribbon. But you may use 3″ width also, the wider it is the easier for you to control the raw edges not to show up. The key is when you roll the fabric (as in step 8-10), make sure the raw edges don’t show up. If it shows up, re-twist till it’s perfectly hidden :). It’s not easy the first time round, but you will soon get it. I saw others use glue-gun instead of sewing in the round of fabric. To use glue-gun, you need to cut out the round felt base first, then as you turn the fabric, just glue it bit-by-bit onto the round felt base. You may try it out too perhaps it’s easily than use needle-threat to sew the twisted ribbon rounds. Feel free to share the outcome if you tried out the glue-gun option :)
