The fabric rosettes are a decorative accessory used to beautify curtains. Add them to a strip to pick up the curtains, attach them to a frame of fabric or tassels suspend them to cover the structure of the curtains. Make your fabric rosettes with the same fabric as the curtains or use a fabric that combine to complement the style. These fabric rosettes require basic hand sewing to make. Sew a couple to add to the brackets or make several to add to your clothing window.
Cut a piece of fabric of 8 inches (20 cm) wide and about 24 inches (60 cm) long with scissors fabric. This will make a rosette fluffed which measured about 4 to 5 inches (10 to 12.5 cm) in diameter, depending on the thickness of the fabric.
Fold the fabric strip in half, with the rights faced with the short ends together. Fixed the ends and make a seam-half inch (1.2 cm) to Fornar a ring. Press the seam open.
Fold the cloth ring wrong side out so that the long edges facing messy. Fixed pins and press the fold. The right side of fabric will show.
Thread the needle with thread that combine hand and make a seam of 1/4 inch (6 mm) with straight stitches along the edge sloppy, leaving a tail of thread on each end. Make a second row of stitches about 1/4 inch of the way to make it easier to assemble it. Use long stitches 1/4 inch soft pleats.
