the fabric strips
i started by folding the fabric in half (lengthwise), then folding it in half again. starting at one end, i started rolling the fabric tightly, rolling it up about 6-7 times before putting a drop of hot glue on the rosette to attach the fabric to. after the first drop of hot glue, i took the fabric and twisted it then continued to roll it around to make the rosette….typically, i was twisting the fabric twice each time around the flower. when i got to the end of the first strip of fabric, i simply glued the end to the flower, then glued the end of the second strip of fabric on top. to finish it off, i just kept twisting and wrapping the fabric (tightly), using a drop of hot glue every inch or so. at the end, simply hot glue the end down.
hot glue. best crafting tool ever.
to finish it off (safely for little hands), i glued an alligator clip to the back…which fit nicely on the elastic band of the skirt.
pretty little rosette. big thanks to cherry street cottage for the amazing tutorial!
i cannot wait to give these adorable skirts to our little girly girl friends. and, i have a feeling i’m going to make a lot more rosettes…they are just way too much fun!
the finished twirly skirts!
