How to Make a Heart Rosette

Or a rosette shaped like a heart? Because a heart really isn't a rosette?

Anyway, I may be a year behind on this but I did some searching and didn't find anything so I figured I would share.

Started out with a piece of felt, my strip of fabric and the hot glue fun.  Tied a knot at the end and glued it down.  Twisted the fabric and glued around.


Started forming the heart shape while doing more twisting and gluing.



Still going.........


At the end I twisted it around, cut off the excess fabric and tucked the end under then hot glued.



Then I cut the excess felt away.  I have a question though, why does the camera amplify the hot glue that is not visible to the naked eye?

And then I put it on a headband!



Don't forget about the Valentine crafting and cooking contest over at Bacon Time with the Hungry Hungry Hypo!  There have been some amazing entries linked up!

  3. Happy Valentine's, lol. This is so cute. This definitely is one of those projects where I would stare at the fabric, unable to figure out how to get a heart out of it. Thanks for sharing at our Link It Up Thursday party.

  20. Great idea-I'm not sure why I've never thought of it, but I'm stealing it now:)

  21. I know what you mean about the camera. I used to have a point and shoot and never had many problems with imperfections showing up. Then I got a DSLR and find glue, lint, scratches, etc. that I never see on my own. Thank goodness for photo enhancement programs to hide some of that stuff!

    I've never seen hearts like this, but yours is really cute. I could totally see them with burlap or on a tote bag. I love gingham fabric, so great choice of fabric on your project too.

    Thank you for sharing your cute Valentine tutorial on my "Your Cozy Home Party"!
