The ever useful rosette

On her blog Sharon Briggs challenged tatters to show different things they can do with the rosette. She actually meant for people to design something but I thought I would share with you a lavender sachet I've done over the years. Its 2 simple rosettes put together using long picots on the outside round. The picture isn't great because I used the scanner. All of the beads are added afterwards, although I think that beaded picots would work just as well. I wrap the lavender in cloth or tissue paper and stick it in before I close it off. I've also made an amulet bad the same way. A couple years ago I made a bunch of these for Christmas. Lavender is often put into drawers or closets to protect clothing from moths.


  1. Oh, that is GORGEOUS! I love it! Thank you for sharing it! Gosh, if you ever want to do a swap for that or one like it...just let me know! ;) ;) ;)

    Okay was that a subtle enough hint, LOL!?

  2. TattingChic, I've never done a swap, what does it entail?


Anyone out there? Say hi if you are......
