Fabric Wrist Corsage

Isn't this beautiful!?  I thought it would make a very pretty Mother's Day gift. 
Easy enough to make using the supplies shown above - fabrics in colors of your choice, felt circles, a few beads and some ribbon, plus hot glue. 
So you start by making the rosette, twisting strips of fabric around and around and glueing them to the felt circles. 
Until it looks like the one above. 
Repeat until you have three rosettes that can go together. 
I like how she put beads on the ends of the ribbon just to dress up the rosette a little more. 
Then, glue the ends of the ribbon to the rosettes, and notice how there's another piece of felt up there...that's to cover all the yucky-ness you see in this picture.  Just glue it on top of all those loose ends. 
Pretty self explanitory, the ribbons just tie the corsage around your wrist.  And voila!  A very pretty corsage that can be worn over and over again.
Happy Mother's Day!
