Quick Roses

These roses are so quick to make and look adorable no matter where you use them!

I made this cute little corsage for the Daddy-Daughter Dance.

If you want to make something like this look for the yo-yo tutorial here
and the rolled rosette tutorial here.

What You'll Need:
Fabric [2 inches by 15 inches]
Small Piece of Matching Felt



Center pieces [rhinestones, buttons or beads]

Take the fabric and fold it in half hot-dog style.

Once you have the 1 inch strip, tie your thread to one end and baste stitch to the other end.
Pull tight like you're making a ruffle, and roll into a flower shape.

Hot glue to felt and under each layer, then add your center piece.

Quick. Simple. Beautiful!

  1. I will share this with my daughter. She spends a fortune on Flower / rose accesories. Fabric scraps can be bought for pretty cheap at second hand stores around here. I can definitely see adding this craft to our next craft time. (She's 19 BTW)
