The Scientific Seamstress: Frayed rosette bib necklace tutorial

Since I was planning on making a dozen or so necklaces, I went ahead and made LOTS of rosettes. They don't take very long to make, and it is nice to have a "stash" to work from while creating. I used a mix of Sis Boom fabrics (mostly soft tonal prints, but I couldn't pass up the wild zebra stripe) and silk dupioni. The silk was very stringy, so it took a little more effort, but the resulting rosettes were so decadent. In addition to the rosettes, you will need:FeltFabric-Tac glueThin needle and sturdy threadAssorted beads, buttons, and baublesRibbonHot glue gunA scrap of knit fabric
