Default Re: Rolled Rosette Flowers- No Fraying

If you use pinking shears (sp?) it is supposed to cut down on the fraying as well. When I do my rolled rosettes I iron and use a fusible bonding to the fabric. If you use 2" wide piece of material then cut 4" wide insteady. Lay the piece of fabric length wise and fold the edge up where the edge just overlaps the center of your fabric piece, iron all the way down the length to make a crease. I then precut the fusible bonding into little 1/4" wide pieces and 1 yard in length (the length depends on how long of fabric you use to do the rosettes). Flip your fabric piece where the ironed edge is at the top now, and iron on the fusible bonding piece to the other edge of your fabric piece (be sure to use no steam), tear off paper from fusible bonding and fold fabric to overlap the center edge of the other end (the part that is in the center of your fabric piece) and iron down along the entire length of your fabric. The fusible bonding keeps the material from fraying, but also keeps your material together which seems to help me make the rosette more perfect too. Hope that these directions make sense. If youi have a question please feel free to PM me and I will try to explain better. LOL.

The fusible bonding can be bought at HL or any fabric store and can be bought by the yard just like fabric. I want to say it is like $1.50 a yard at HL.

I either fold the fabric in half and fold/roll it so the frayed side doesn't show or I use ribbon most of the time.

that's a fantastic idea . . . all i've got is heat & bond "lite" so i'll give it a try - thank you.

this also reminded me of something else i should try . . . d/sided tape for lining clips.

I can see the question has already been answered, but I use the bias cut technique in many of my tutorials and thought I would share a pic so you can see. The easiest way for me to cut on the bias is to use a quilt mat, ruler and rotary cutter.

Also, just an FYI, if you use silk it does still fray a bit, but not the long strands of fray.

Best of luck! I hope to see pics of your roses when you are done!!

thanks! hope you also include this suggestion to connect the strips. makes a big difference/eliminates bulk . . . this also works for those pieces cut on the grain.

Thanks soooooo much everyone! You all have been extremely helpful! I have some Heat and Bond that I can use and I'm going to try the bias cut method as well... I'll post pics when I finish!
