Fashion DIY: Zebra Rosette Pendant
Whether frilly or plain, small or large, pendants are a fun way to dress up and add texture to a scarf. I ordered the grosgrain animal print ribbon with my daughter in mind; her room is decorated in zebra, so there will be more projects as far as this ribbon is concerned!
To begin, you will need a needle and white thread (about 18″ of knotted thread will do for this size of rosette). Next, fold the ribbon in half and start a straight stitch along the edge:
Create a gather in the ribbon as you continue with the straight stitching.
As you go along, wrap the gathered ribbon into a rosette fashion; this will help you to determine how large you’d like for the rosette to be.
For the base, cut a circle from a piece of felt (smaller than the rosette):
Cover the felt with a thick coating of fabric glue and press the rosette into place. It may be necessary to add a dab of glue in between layers of the rosette, especially more towards the center.
Stitch or glue a pin-back onto the back of the rosette. Embellish with a monogram pin, buttons or smaller rosettes!
