I was really surprised how easy these were! Tutorial on my blog Smiley

The pattern is basically three large circles spaced round a smaller circle. You need 2 of these, and one piece the same shape but smaller for the middle petals.

Soak the leather in warm water until it goes squishy, then lay the 2 big pieces on top of each other and pull the petals between each other so the two pieces sort of lock together. Then you can mould the petals with your fingers and roll the edges. Do the same for the small piece, and then tie with soft string so they stay in shape and let them dry.

Finish off by gluing the small piece into the middle of the rose.

Thankyou! The leather looks lighter than it is in the pics as I took them in full sunlight, but it did turn out kind of chocolatey!

I guess you have to use red leather next time.

I wonder if this works well with Pleather (plastic leather).  I don't know if you can mold it the same way as you can with leather.
