If you possess some basic fashion sewing skills, you can turn your knowledge into pretty much anything creative.
In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to create something truly beautiful and decorative that can be used to adorn your favourite piece of clothing, or used as a stand alone decoration.
Tip – Practise makes perfect!
1: Begin by folding the very end of the ribbon towards you and then make small folds towards the folded edge. This creates the centre of your rose.
2: We will now begin to create the petals so remember to hold firmly with the thumb and index finger.
3: With your other hand, using your index finger, place under the ribbon to help create a fold away from you.
4: Hold the bottom of the newly formed petal with your other hand and turn and pinch together.
5: Repeat this process until you’ve used all of your ribbon. Using the very end, cup around the newly formed stem to give your rose a neat finish.
6: Holding firmly and using a double threaded needle with a knot at the end, place into the stem of the rose through all thicknesses.
7: Wrap the thread around the stem a few times as added security and then pierce through the stem with the needle and secure with a knot.
8: Your ribbon rose is now complete.
