Default The answer to this is probably obvious but....

My brain is stuck. LOL

So, I'm trying to make a lace headband with a rolled rosette. The lace is a little over 2" in the rosette is like 1.5".

How am I going to cover the seam where the ends of the lace meets? I know if I have a few rosettes together, I can cover it up. But what if you want just one rosette to make a simple design. I'm not planning to make it with a attachment loop thing...I wanted the rosette to be permanently glued on.

Any suggestions?

Yes, but the line will show from the front above and below the rosette. I wonder if I should just make the seam in the back. Hmm...

I would put the seam on the back of the headband.

fold both edges of the lace to the middle and glue it to the flower and put felt over the back of the flower.

Just sew the lace together in that spot so that its smaller than that rosette

Yeah, I thought of that, too but I didn't really want that look. I will try it, though.
