At the end of BirdSong Day 1, after it was time to swap!
I hosted a rosette swap which required that you make a fabric rosette to display a vintage bird pin (going with the BirdSong theme).
We had just about every color of the rainbow.... every technqiue used to make the rosettes....every possible material... some were very frou-frou (like mine)...while others were more organic and simple.
I heard from several ladies that the challenge had been finding just the right pin; I couldn't agree more!
I struggled with my bird pin, and ended up attaching is to a doily which I added to my rosette. This made it rather heavy and floppy, but luckily, the pin was easily removed and wasn't a permanent attachment.
The overall effect of my rosette was more like a medallion... lots of ribbons hanging... you know me, I can't stop at "simple!"
