I was so delighted when the lovely people at Laura Ashley invited me to take part in their Sew and Stitch challenge, and even more delighted when a beautiful parcel of fabric arrived at my door!
I decided to make rosettes with my fabric, as not only are they easy to make (my approach to sewing is rustic at best, so if I can make them, anyone can!) but they’re also great for adding a decorative flourish to all sorts of things. Plus these fabrics are absolutely perfect for making rosettes as they retain their lovely ruffled shape so well. They would be lovely gathered en masse as party decorations or as a focal point in a child’s bedroom, or you could make smaller rosettes to decorate a handmade bag or cushion.
The folk at Laura Ashley are again running a lovely competition! Head over to their blog here to see all four Sew And Stitch posts by different bloggers, if you vote for your favourite post you are in with a chance of winning a £50 Laura Ashley voucher!
My tutorial is after the jump - if you make any rosettes for yourself, I'd love to see them, so please do share with me by tagging me on Instagram or Twitter.
Have a lovely weekend!
