A “Twist” on Zipper Rosettes

I got together with some of my friends today to make zipper rosettes.  They are so much fun and easy to do.  Then I started fiddling around and came up with this “TWIST” on the rosettes!!!
Hot Glue Gun
Undo your zipper completely cutting off the end so you can remove the zipper head.  So it looks like this:
Then fold the excess fabric at one end over and glue it in place.
Fold the end tightly over and glue it in place onto a square of felt.  The size of your felt with depend on how long your zipper is.  It’s better to have too much felt then not enough.
Now twist the loose end of your zipper.
Twist it pretty tight and then start gluing it down to the felt.
You’ll keep twisting and putting some glue down to hold it in place rotating all the way around several times.  When you get to the end just glue it down.  Once your glue is cooled off and dry trim the excess felt away and then add some more glue where the zipper lays a little loose still.
Now you can attach it to whatever you want, just like the other zipper rosettes.  I made two smaller ones and attached them to a headband. 
This was my attempt at taking a picture of me wearing the headband, but then I gave up and convince my daughter to put it on and let me take a picture!!!

Oh neat! I was wondering how you did that. What a great tutorial! I love tutorials...I need to get better at putting more on my blog. I always love showing my projects and then realize I don't always take pictures of the steps. Sheesh!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hi. It's nice to "meet" you, Marilyn. I'm a new follower : ) Keep in touch, girl! Love meeting new people out here in blog-land.

Have a wonderful Wednesday, friend.
Love, Laura
