When I first started this cross, my initial plan was to make it with 3 rosettes in a row and with 3 columns. Then my husband took a look at what I was doing and suggested making it just one row of rosettes with tiny white rosettes placed in all the little empty spaces. I LOVED his idea and LOVE how it came out.
I have a fabric rosette tutorial you can check out here!!! I hot glued all the rosettes together. Then, I cut up a sturdy piece of JUNK MAIL and glued it on the back of the rosettes to give it a little extra firmness.
Then I twisted and hot glued a little twist tie on the back for a hook.
What do y’all think??
I hung it up in Alie’s room just above her sweet vintage praying children we found at the Goodwill. No matter how much I adjusted the colors I couldn’t get it to quite match the true color of the teal rosettes. They aren’t quite as dark and are just a few shades darker but match perfectly the color of the little boys pajamas. Now for the most important question of all. YES, Alie loves her new fancy MOMMY made cross.
