how to easily diy rolled fabric flowers
Step #1: Cut 2-3″ wide strips the length of your fabric. Longer strips make larger rolled fabric flowers and rosettes.
Step #2: Fold the fabric strip in half.
Step #3: Begin to twist the fabric strip and roll into a tight coil.
Step #4: Periodically, secure with a drop of hot glue. Continue to twist the fabric and coil it until you reach the size you want. If making a collection of rolled flowers and rosettes, create a variety of sizes.
