I came across this fun tutorial for a large rosette flower a while back. Yes, there are billions of tutorials for rosettes all over the blogosphere, but this flower looked a billion times better than any other I'd ever seen (in my little opinion). So, I made a note to try it out and then I forgot again until I saw Delia make one as well.
So HERE is the original tutorial from Tanya's blog, Trey and Lucy. She also added a video tutorial (great idea) of it HERE. Anyhow, I LOVE it in her hair and I LOVE the outfit she's wearing with it. Gorgeous!
So, when naptime hit yesterday I headed off to make one. Here's mine.
I haven't decided if I'm going to use it in my hair or on a cardigan or what. We'll see. I think it would look especially cool with a doily behind it.
The boys had fun seeing who could balance it on their head longer.
It actually conceals bedhead quite well....well, maybe just partially.
Once again you can find the tutorial HERE. Thanks for a great idea, Tanya!
Thanks for stopping in!
