I don’t have anything for vday, so, I’m showing you how I made these roses. they can be used on cards, quilts, clothing, scarves, headbands, pillows—you can even frame them.
the dark pink rose is on a muslin bag, and the light pink is on a lace scarf.
to make this rose: with thread, make a star shape. then, just weave the ribbon over and under repeatedly, until the star is filled. the bigger the star, the bigger the rose.
for the smooth look below, use silk ribbon. for the crinkled look, I use seam binding that I hand dyed.
I found the instructions in this book, which I found at a 2nd hand book store.
if you’d like to try these roses, here’s a great youtube video showing all the steps.
have a great valentine’s day, everyone!
