Getting Crafty!

I have shamelessly stolen another idea from my friend Veronica's blog, Life by the Skein. Last week she wrote about rosettes and I was so inspired by the gorgeous necklace she made that I decided to try my hand at one of these little fabric flowers. I used the same tutorial Veronica did from Portabello Pixie. To make this rosette, you need a strip of fabric, a needle and thread, a button or bead, an iron, and some patience.

I had planned all along to attach the rosette to an old headband I never wear anymore. It initially had long ties coming from the ends, but I clipped those off. My first attempt at the rosette was too three-dimensional and I thought it would look like a lone horn sprouting off the top of my head. On my second try, I went for a flatter, wider look and I was thrilled with the result. Then I hot-glued it on to the headband and wore my new creation to work today. For the whole outfit, check out this week's What I Wore Wednesday post.
