Friendly Tuesday :: Creations by Kara

Hi seven thirty three fans! I’m Kara from Creations by Kara. I like all things crafty and creative. From furniture refinishing, to family friendly recipes, to dollar store decorating, I try it all!


Today I am going to share a simple project that would make a great Christmas gift for any of the jewelry lovers on your list. Girls of all ages will love these cute and unique rings. I saw something similar at a local quilting store, and just had to give it a try. You can use any color or type of fabric you like. The one on the right was made from an old pair of jeans.

Fabric Rosette Ring Tutorial

Supplies:
-Strip of fabric about 1″ wide and 24″ long
-Scrap of white felt cut into a tiny strip, and a 3/4″ circle
-A small hair elastic
-Hot glue

Take your strip of fabric. I tore mine so it would have a nice shabby edge. Pull off any loose threads and lay it out on your work surface.
Fold one end in half, wrong sides together.

Fold the end in diagonally, and hot glue it in place.
Next start rolling the fabric up, from right to left. Use tiny dabs of hot glue to secure it in place.
It will look like this from the top:
Now just start twisting the fabric and wrapping it around the spiral center:

When it is the size you want, cut the fabric, leaving a small piece to attach to the back.
On the back side, you should have a roll of fabric sticking up.
Cut it off. Then fold the end of the fabric to the back and attach it with hot glue.
Then take your tiny felt circle and glue it to the back. (Sorry, I forgot to photograph that step.)

Now take your elastic and put it in the middle of the circle with the little strip on top of it. Basically you are going to sandwich the elastic between the two pieces of felt. Attach the strip on both sides with a small amount of hot glue.
It will look like this when you are finished.
And here it is from the front:
That’s it. Thanks so much for having me Kim!! Hope you will all stop by and visit sometime. :)
