Making Ribbon Roses


This is something fun to do on a rainy afternoon! Let's make ribbon roses!


Every one comes out different!


And there's no perfect way to make them. I looked for a tutorial on you tube but there are SO many of them and most are SO complicated! I kept it simple and easy!


Just get a length of silk ribbon and make a long running stitch near the edge...not too near!


And then pull the thread to gather it. Tuck and twist until you like it and then go on the underside and put some stitches in to hold it together. Some of these I've even sewed a little circle of felt under them. They could be a brooch then! 


You can sew them on a bag or purse or apron!


 Or glue them on a card or book!


Use your imagination and HAVE FUN!


I bought my silk ribbon from Victorian Gypsy Girl. Her shop is HERE on Etsy. She has the MOST beautiful silk ribbon and fabulous prices!


 I gave a card to a sweet lady at the Legacy Hospice house and it had a lavender rose on it. I forgot to take a photo of the card but she really loved it....and that was worth it all!

Are you crafting or sewing this summer? 

I’m joining Thankful Thursdays .

Your ribbon roses are perfect, Diane. I love using the same technique as you did (I mean sewing on ribbon to make flowers). Great colours too. Hugs, my friend.

Oh my gosh, I saw these a few days ago and was going to comment, but then got distracted with something. These are sooooo pretty. The first one with the rainbow colors is very nice and looks like Summer, but that last one really got to me. It is so lovely. What a fun project to do on a rainy afternoon.
