Last minute gifts - {A flower rosette necklace}

This necklace was inspired by my love for vintage things and lovely roses so I combined both to make this sweet necklace.

What you need:
(and a metal chain)

Make the fabric rosette by sewing a strip of fabric, roll and twist it around to get it into shape. There are lots of fabric flower tutorials on the Internet so if you are new to this, it won't be a problem. For the rose I used gauze. I loosely sewed a tube out of it and then pulled one of the threads to gather it. I shaped it into a rose.

Then I gathered the piece of lace and sewed the flowers on top of it. I attached the chain to the lace piece and this lovely necklace was born.

Isn't it gorgeous? And it doesn't take more than 15 minutes to make it! Enjoy!

I just can bear the cuteness!
