I'm sitting in the Seattle airport, on my way to somewhere exciting. Here's a hint: I'm hoping to find lots of the printed masking tape shown below when I get there. I was told it was everywhere. Any guesses?
This last rosette tutorial is so simple I didn't even take pictures step-by-step. Okay, the real, honest truth is that I was so busy cleaning and packing and planning for this trip that I didn't have time to take pictures. But really, it's easy.
This is the braided rosette. It's a little different, but it fits in nicely with it's fluffier friends. In fact, I like to incorporate them with my regular rosettes when I make my rosette bib necklaces, just to add some texture.
1. Start with three narrow strands of your fabric. (1/4" to 1/2" wide, 22" long). In the pink rosette, I used two strips of one pink shade, and a third strip of a slightly darker pink fabric to make it interesting.
2. Hold the three strands together and tie a knot at one end. Now braid the pieces together. You can use a small dot of fabric glue to keep the ends together if you want. I don't bother.
3. Roll the braid around the knot to create your rosette, adding a dot of glue about every 1/2 turn. Finish as you did the regular rosette. That's it!
More info on the rosette-themed mini class when I get back from my trip. Stay tuned!
