I know there are a lot of ways to make a rose but this is my version
It is lovely and full and best, it uses up scraps
Tear 2 inch lengths of assorted fabric, anything light works
Looks good in a pale print too.
Tear pieces about half a yard long and make enough for 3 yards
Sew down one side using a gathering stitch on machine, when you run out of one piece, lap another 4 inches under and continue
Pull stitches up until a yard long
Roll a core on one end and arrange the rest of the ruffle around it.
Secure on the back with a hand needle and thread
To shape the outer petals a bit, hit them very lightly with a heat gun
Hope you like my idea here and all my projects
