Have any of you looked through 'Sew Pretty Homestyle'?  It was in the local library and Mum asked if I'd make her a few things from the book.  These fabric roses were very simple to sew and fun to put together.  I used a machine but these would be easy to do by hand.  Mine are made from homespun and a few pieces of vintage cotton - homespun held the best shape.   




How they were made...

1. Take a rectangle of fabric (about 20 - 25cm wide / 35 - 40cm long.)  Fold it in half lengthways, right sides together.  Stitch the wavy pattern, leaving an opening to turn out.  Trim, turn out, stitch the opening closed.

2. Starting at the smaller end, gather and roll the straight edge of the rectangle.

3. Pretty soon you will have a nice flower looking shape.  Stitch through the base once or twice to secure.

4. Fold down some of the petal edges to open the rose.  All finished Smiley

I have been looking for a nice fabric rose tute and this just what I was looking for.  I don't have a sewing machine and since you said I could do it by hand I will def try.  Thanks!

This is right on time for me! I was just about to purchase some roses online after being unable to locate instructions on how to make one. I need to sew 1-3 roses on some pillows I'm about to make. This is perfect. Now I can choose my own colors instead of what was only available.

You are a true godsend! Thanks! Off to practice...

i feel a little silly now, because this is so simple, and i've been trying to figure it out for ages. i think i'll make a headband immediately.
