how to make a fabric rosette flower VIDEO tutorial!

i’ve had quite a few requests for a video on how to make fabric rosettes….and i finally convinced davis to play camera man for a few minutes last night and put together my 2nd ever youtube video. its definitely an amateur video, so please don’t laugh!! {it took us 10 takes and a grumpy davis, before we got one that i thought was ok!}

so do you like video or picture tutorials better?

    Thanks for posting the video. I’ve been trying to make the rosettes and while they look nice, they never look as great as yours, so this will definitely help. And the video was great…so don’t stress! :o)

    Great video! I’ve also made a few rosettes and they never turn out exactly how I wanted them to. I kept looking at different picture step-by-step tutorials and couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong! Now I realize what I was doing wrong! Love the video tutorials! thanks!

    I love the video because it shows so much more detail. Thank you!! However, I can barely hear you even with the volume all the way up.

    Thanks for making a video. I like videos better but it takes more time for you. so maybe once in a while do videos like for some harder things like this flower which is so easy but in the pictures it makes it look hard to do.

    I definitely like the video for an occasional treat for how-tos. You mumbled a few times so I would suggest speaking a little more loudly and clearly in the future, but I’m sure after 10 tries you were tired. Good Job!

    so THAT’s how you do yours!! LOL I always thought yours looked like cabbage roses, and wanted to know how you did ’em. Thanks so much for doing the video (nice to put a voice with the cute face too) :-)

    Great video Linda! I’ve been wondering how these are done!

    Videos are so much better than step by step pictures I think. Thanks for making this one, this looks like something I can do! ;)

    I like video tutorials much better! Thanks for making one!

    I like the picture tutorials better because I couldn’t hear the audio at all but could follow what you were doing anyway. I’ve made these before but thought a refresher can’t be bad!!! You do make it look easy! Thanks!

      Yikes! I don’t know why the audio didn’t come through. So sorry! Thanks for letting me know!
      happy crafting,

    Great job! I’ve made a few of these and they’re really fun. I cut a strip from an old pair of my son’s jeans and made one and it was adorable! I put a pink button tied with twine in the center! There are so many ways to embellish them too! Love videos! Just another vote for speaking a little louder next time. :)

    Thanks for posting this. I think I see fabric roses in my future!!

    I don’t know which I prefer honestly. I do like PDF’s to store, but I guess there’s no difference in being able to go back to video. I’ll have to check it out later when I have time, but wanted to thank you for the effort.

    Thank you! I like video better. I’m a pretty smart gal, but having never seen a roset made in person, so the photos just never got me to where I could make one that looked the quality of those in the tutorial. Now I feel confident that I can make beautiful rosets on my own having had the video tutorial!

    What a cute and easy idea. As a seamstress, the raw edges would bother me. I think I wll turn the fabric right sides together, machine or hand sew a 1/4 inch seam at the raw edges then turn the resulting tube. Some craft and fabric stores sell a tool for this but I use the low tech method. I attach a safety pin at one end of the tube and push the pin thru the tube, scrunching the fabric as I pull the pin thru to the other end of the tube. I will press just the seam side, not the fold side and then proceed as you so aptly demonstrated. Thank you for the idea. I have already thought of a half dozen uses and I want to make them now!
