  1. Assorted Color of Fabric Rosette

    June 15, 2011 by admin

    After a few more trial and error attempt with glue gun and improving the technique on how to roll and turn the fabric strips, I managed to make better rosette as shown in these two pictures. The printed one are made from designers cotton, scraps I bought from Okinokiyo.com.

    Next I will incorporate these rosettes in cardmaking and scrapbook layout. These rosettes are quite flat and not as bulky as some flowers available in the market. I don’t really mind having a textured embellishment on layout but the problem will come later when I want to store it.

    If only we have greater choice in Malaysia when it comes to shadow box, and cheaper one as well.

    If you are using this on cards, I think you will need to custom made the envelope to fit the bulky part of the fabric rosette. And of course you need to pay extra for the postage.

    Oh, these rosettes are available for sale since I don’t think I will use all of them on my creations as much as I get addicted making them. Those interested to buy kindly leave comment and your valid email address and I will get back to you.


  2. Better Fabric Rosette

    June 8, 2011 by admin

    After watching a few more videos on how to make fabric rosette, I think I finally get the concept of rolling and turning the fabric into rosette. After the third attempt, I can see the different it makes in the correct technique. Check out the one in white. Compare that with my first attempt of rosette (in previous post), the one in purple is more like folded rose than rolled rosette.

    I still couldn’t get Fabri-tac anywhere. The only option is to buy online on ebay, which will cost me almost RM80 for 8oz after currency conversion and postage from US to Malaysia..huhu!

    For the one in mauve, I used glue gun to adhere the fabric. As usual with glue gun, I burnt my fingers and it got me really pissed off..huhu! Oh, I tried putting small pearls on 2 of the fabric rosette just to see how it will look like. I also use felt on the bottom of the rosette, in case I want to use these handmade flowers for my cardmaking or scrapbook layout later.

    Maybe I should just make these fabric rosettes and sell them as craft supply for those who need to embellish their handmade products like hat, headband, tote bag or even cards and scrapbook layout. What about 3 pieces for RM5? haha..(that if I can get Fabri-tac anytime soon)


  3. More Fabric Flowers

    June 3, 2011 by admin

    Mai of Okinokiyo.com forwarded a URL on how to make fabric rosette last week. The problem is I don’t really have much choice when it comes to fabric. My craft work for the past few years consists of tulle, organza and ribbons, but hardly fabric.

    It is also hard to get fabric glue where I live. Yes, there are many multi purpose glue in the market that could be used to attach two pieces of fabric, but after years of crafting I learned that using the right tools will usually make your task easier and the outcome is more satisfying.

    In the end I just use some cheap fabric I bought earlier in Kamdar and Glossy Accent as substitute for fabric glue. Since I was so lazy to go to the messy craft room to find a suitable size of bead or pearl to be sewn in the middle of the rosette, I just used one of the Czech glass beads I have in the room. I bought those beads to be used as part of my crochet bookmark (which has not been used so far, guilty as charged for being a hoarder..haha!)

    Anyway, my personal favourite for fabric flower is still this sewn 5 petals flower, which I have shared the tutorial earlier. This time since I don’t have a big button that is suitable to be put in the centre, I decided to stack a crochet flower on top of the fabric flower. Err..why do I think I need to get more choice of colors for crochet threads?
