Don't forget, today is the last day to enter the Shabby Apple Dress giveaway!
So this is in no way original, but I've finally jumped on the band wagon and made some rolled rose bib necklaces. I haven't decided how to string them yet, I am thinking ribbon, but am still open to suggestions. I know there are a lot of tutorials out there on this so I'm just going to go through the basics and if you need more details you can ask.
rolled roses on a piece of felt how you would like them. With your favorite fabric glue, tack each one down with a good amount of glue. The glue will help stiffen your bib so as long as you don't get messy you can't have to much (in my opinion).
Allow to dry, then trim as close as you can so that the felt is not seen from the front.
I also knew I didn't want to leave the felt exposed as I didn't want it to pill. I used a scrap of white cotton fabric, covered the felt with fabric glue and sandwiched the rings between the felt and the cotton. Allow to dry and again trim. When you get to the rings (if you choose to use them like I did) cut a little extra tab in the cotton and pull through the ring. Fold over and tack so that your ring is even more secure.
I also made this one the same way...
