Rosette Pin

It won't be long and we will be needing warmer clothing and hats!  Maybe your girls will be more apt to wear one if they have a pin to dress it up!  Maybe if they made one themselves?  A great Mother/ Daughter project.

At October's Monthly Card Class, we make 3 cards (which have been posted) and one 3D project.  This month the Designer Fabric was highlighted in the project.  We used the Springtime Vintage Fabric and Timeless Portrait Fabric, depending on the knit cap color.  Each guest made one flower pin at class.  I love these quick and easy flowers to show off Stampin' Up!s Fabric. I got the knit hats during last winter's clearance sales! 

Supplies:  Fabric- 2 1/4" x 18", Button, Sewing Needle, Pin Back

Technique Tip:  Fabric Scraps are perfect for this project.  Tear a strip 2 1/4" x 18" fabric.  Press the short ends under 1/4" on each side.  Fold the strip in half putting raw edges together.  Sew a running/ gathering stitch the 17" on the raw edge side. Gather together and form a circle (spiral the fabric).  Sew through all layers in the center about 3- 4 times.  Sew on a button (we used retired buttons I had on hand).  Sew on a pin back. If you would like me to make a how to video, leave me a comment!

These look great on gloves, scarves, as a  hair clip, headband accessory, a coat pin.  Put several together for a great look or layer several widths for a larger flower.
