    sewing rosettes

    Has anyone hand sewn a rosette out of plaid fabric? I am having a bloody hell of a time getting it down right.

    Not sure exactly what you trying to do, but might this help:

    It would probably be easier to make tartan rosettes out of ribbon rather than fabric.

    If you're talking about the rosettes on kilts, they're made out of ribbon manufactured to the correct width rather than cut out of tartan fabric.

    Here's the style worn on the kilts of The Black Watch, with the piper's style on the right. People often call these "rosettes" but to me they're "bows".



    I've made these before, they're not difficult. Here's mine



    The rosettes on the kilts of the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders are completely different

    Thanks for the heads up fellas!
    I ended up making rosettes for my flashes instead of on my kilt I posted a picture in the DYI section
    Cheers
