Using fabric cut away from my granddaughter’s prom dress (I shortened it 3 and 1/2 inches), I made a rosette lapel pin for her date.
There are great tutorials on the web for how to flame the edges of fabric circles with a tea light that melt and curl them a bit.
Then just stack six or seven, and stitch together with a glass pearl center.
I added two silk leaves and glued on a pin back. Light touches of gold acrylic paint here and there around the petals completed the look.
She’s delighted to give him something special for the prom.
You can also use the extra wide satin ribbon to make beautiful brooches for women.
