Hello again! This is a tutorial request from one of my awesome readers who wanted to know more about adding mesh and stuff to the flowers like in the pictures at the bottom of my ROLLED FABRIC ROSETTE HEADBAND TUTORIAL. (Say that ten times fast!) So...here you go, Cheron! :)
YOU WILL NEED:
A rolled fabric rosette
A needle and thread
Step 1: Get your flower ready! Don't remember how to make them? Go HERE.
Step 2: get your mesh ready. (Mine is a pale turquoise...you can't really tell in the pictures)
*You can find this for really cheap at any fabric store or even Walmart*
Now, cut a piece of mesh. I cut mine to about 2 inches high and 6 inches wide. You can cut yours to whatever size you want, though. To be honest, it looks good no matter what size you do it!
Fold your mesh in half.
Take your needle and thread, and weave the needle in and out along the center of the mesh. (close to the part where it is folded.)
Okay, now pinch it together...
and tie it up. Trim the thread so you don't have long pieces hanging over.
So it looks like this.
Now you'll take your glue gun and put a little bit of glue on the back of the flower and stick the mesh to it.
Make a line of glue down the middle of the back...
And put your headband in the glue. Hold it there for a minute while the glue cools a little.
Now take another circle of felt and glue it to the back, just like in the first tutorial.
And that's it! You can make your mesh wider and longer and wrap it all the way around the flower...it'll look kind of like this
So many possibilities! If you guys have any more questions, let me know! :)
