DIY Thursday: Fabric Roses

I'm sure that you've been seeing these gorgeous fabric rose bib necklaces and accessories everywhere if you visit Etsy on a regular basis, and I've been really wanting to try them for myself. I'm not really a huge, chunky necklace kind of girl, so my preferred avenue would probably be headbands and brooches. I picked up this charming little stretchy headband from the magnificent lou and lee for Cate at Christmas, and have been searching for a good fabric rose tutorial ever since. I finally found one last week at a crafty blog called Everyday Chaos, and the instructions are really clear and detailed. I bought some cute plaid and gingham fabric this past weekend, along with a pretty light blue seersucker I've already used to cover a wooden bangle, and I hope to be able to make some progress on new headbands this weekend.

I'll give the abbreviated tutorial in photos, but be sure and check out the full project instructions here if you decide to try it. I'll keep you posted, and I hope to have something good to show for myself!
