DIY Lace and Tulle Rosettes Tutorial

 
 




Happy Friday all!

Well, I have a super easy weekend project for you if you were planning on being crafty. What I want to show you is two featherly easy techniques to make lace and tulle rosettes.

Let's start with the Lace Technique


1. You need a strip of elastic lace. The width and length determine the size. For my rosette I used 7.1" / 18 cm long and 1.2" / 3 cm wide lace strip.

2. Fold it in half.

3. Fold the end to mark the center. *(Instead of folding you can tie a knot here).

4. Start turning the strip around that center you folded.



5. Hold the center so that it doesn't bulge up while turning.

6. When done, pin it in several places.

7/8  Tuck the end underneath and shape it with fingers to get the right look.

Tulle Technique



1 / 2. Cut  a strip of elastic tulle. The for my rosette I used 3.9" / 10 cm long and 1.2" / 3 cm wide lace strip. Note that the longer the tulle strip, the bigger the rosette. Put it on your index finger and start winding it around. Do not go up and down the finger - do the winding in one spot.

3. Next, carefully slip it off your finger.

4 / 5. Hold it tight and pin it.

After you pinned the rosettes, thread a sewing needle and sew through all the layers minding not to disturb the shape of it.
As you can see from the pictures, I used these cute rosettes to make rings. As a matter of fact, these can be used for all kind of accessories or refreshening old clothes, etc.
I hope you enjoyed my techniques!

You make it looks so easy; I'm a little klutzy so I don't know if my end result would be as pretty as yours. Very cute!

Oh, Carol you are so kind. I am sure the end result wouldn't be as you say it would be. Mine were not as pretty when I started, but it gets better with practice!
