Big Red Rosette

Hey, All!  I hope you had a great weekend!  I got to celebrate my first Thanksgiving last night!  It was absolutely delicious and I'm so excited I get to do it all again on Thursday!

Last week my family took our pictures for our holiday card.  I wanted all of us to dress in coordinating colors.  This year our colors were brown and red.  I found a great, little plaid shirt for Kason that served as the inspiration.  I found a super cute and chunky brown sweater for me, but I needed a fun red accessory.

Enter this insanely gorgeous rosette that Tanya made over at Trey and Lucy.  I knew it would pack the punch I was looking for.


I followed Tanya's tutorial and watched her do it a few times (she has a video tutorial too), and then gave it a whirl.  This is how mine turned out.


I used 1/4 yard of red broad cloth and it only cost .50!  :)  Isn't that incredible!  I gave my best effort at hand sewing, but I ended up hot gluing some of it because of my lack of sewing skills. :)


I finished the back with a piece of red felt and a pin.


Here it is in action!  The pin is gorgeous, and how about that little guy?  SUTCH a cutie! :)


I let a friend borrow the pin for her family pics.  She put it on her little girl's head band and it is just darling!


At that price, I will definitely be making more of these beauties!  I know my girlfriends would love these for Christmas gifts too!

Here are a few more of my favorite pics from Sunday's shoot.








I hope you have a great Monday!  Only three more days until turkey! :)

Partying HERE this week!

  1. Too cute! And you can take your pick of whether I'm referring to the brooch or your little guy. ;) I love the size of the flower! Definitely a statement piece. :)

  2. That is so darling! I love it as a hat. I love it as an ornament on your jacket...cute as a headband. I'm wondering how she got it to stay in her hair. Probably a hair comb glued to the back. Have to check out her tutorial.

  11. I am addicted to those things!! I cheat too and use a gluegun, instead of sewing them :) And of course burn the heck out of my fingers!
