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?
