Rolled Fabric Rosette Headband Tutorial!!!

I've gotten a lot of requests for the tutorial on the rolled fabric rosette headbands! So, here you go! :)


*STRIPS OF FABRIC 1 to 2 inches wide. The longer the fabric, the bigger in diameter the flower will be.

*GLUE; you can use fabric glue or glue gun (I used glue gun) HOWEVER, if you are going to adhere these to something you will be washing, use fabric glue because it's washable.

*FELT (to use for backing)



Take your strip of fabric. I like to tear mine because I like how the frayed edges look.

Fold your fabric in half.

Fold over one corner...

And then the other to make a point at the top.

Now, take your felt and add a little puddle of glue to the center.

And glue down the pointed end of your fabric onto the felt. This will be the center of your flower.

Start to twist the fabric around...

And as you twist around, glue around the edge to secure it down.

Keep twisting and gluing it down...

And when you get to the edge of your felt stop.

Trim off the extra fabric leaving a little bit of hangover.

Now, glue the piece of hangover onto the back of the fabric.

Now, cut around the flower to remove the extra felt.

Flip it over and glue it to the back of your headband. (I decided to use the stretchy kind this time...)

Add as many flowers as you want, and glue felt circles on top of the headband to make it extra secure!

Now, you can either leave it and be done, or embellish it. They look cute either way! If you want to embellish the flowers, add a little pool of glue to the center of your flower.

Glue on your button. You can add as many as you want...wherever you want. That's the fun part!'re done! Now you can enjoy your own custom headband! Give yourself a big pat on the back! Be sure to link back to me if you blog about it...I can't wait to see what you guys create!!! I know they will all be ADORABLE!

These are some of my other's addicting!

*UPDATE* Check out my new TUTORIAL on how to add mesh like the ones in the pictures! :)
