My Darling Rosette!

There are the most amazing bloggers out there, recently I purchased this beautiful rosette flower pin from (Count your Blessings Blog) I love it so much, It was even better than the picture.
I wished i could figure out how she made it, it is so lovely full of layers of fabric-tulle, i just couldn't figure it out.

Well a few days later,  there was a tutorial on how to make those beautiful Rosettes from Jill at Gypsy Flea Market Blog or at least very similar . How Wonderful it that?
We can copy-try to emulate but really nothing is ever like the original..
 So I decided to give it a try, using her directions, and if you go to
 French Cupboard's Blog today, they are doing a whole post & sharing of Rosettes..
So Here is my First Attempt.
1..using a pulled apart flower-adding some stamp to it, to give character- then adding fringed pieces of cut fabric to layer, and then added some lace as well.

2.. You use wire to pull them together in the center of each piece of fabric-or the flower petal, starting with smaller-to larger.

And here you go.

Now that i have tried it, and sort of can see how it pulls together, I might just try some other fabrics-textures-layers...
Just Love it..
Thank You for Sharing & Inspiring us to give it a try.
