Akara Fabric (African Print)
Measuring Tape
Hot Glue Gun
Scissors

Step 1: Cut out a piece of fabric about 3" (inches) wide and 17" inches long.
Step 2: Fold fabric into two equal halves.
Step 3: Using a hot glue gun, glue one end of the fabric strip together.
Step 4: Roll up the glued end of the fabric a little.
This rolled up end will become the center of the rosette.
Step 5: Using a hot glue gun again, glue the rolled up end to prevent it from unravelling.
Step 6: Begin twisting the fabric away from you.
As you twist, move towards the center of the rosette.
Step 7: Once a full round has been made, use hot glue to glue it down. Again, this prevents it from unravelling.
Step 9: Leave about 1/2 an inch of fabric towards the end and glue fabric down. This will help cover the bottom of the rosette.
Step 10: Here we have the finished rosette. Remember, as you keep practicing on your rosetts you will get better.
