• Fabric roses: 4 practical workshops

    Handmade fabric flowers have become a popular decor. They are used to decorate clothes, bags, hair ties, as well as to create beautiful flower arrangements.

    1. Master class for beginners

    Even a beginner will be able to cope with such work; we will need:

    • tapes a half centimeters wide and a meter long of fabric,
    • beads,
    • felt,
    • glue,
    • scissors,
    • as well as a sewing machine.

    So, place the ribbon of fabric on the surface face down.

    Fold the piece of fabric so that an angle of 90 degrees is formed. Now you need to continue to bend the edges until the hole is in the middle. The fabric must continue to be bent until there is a minimum of space in the center. As soon as the fabric will remain approximately 15 centimeters, the resulting shape should be smoothed iron. As soon as the last crease is completed, you need to put the product under a heavy object to form a bud.

    With the help of glue in the center of the fabric rose we attach the beads or other decoration - the core. To work was neat, do not need to use a lot of glue.

    From felt, a piece of which is smaller than the flower itself, we make a buckle. As soon as the glued fastener is ready, you can try on a rose-like ornament:

    2. Making a rose from an untreated fabric strip

    In this case, any fabric (monophonic or patterned) is suitable for making a flower; however, it is easiest to work with non-slip fabric of medium density. Calico and chintz at the same time you can not cut, but just tear. The edges of the strips do not need to be processed, since the threads sticking out of the rose and the small fringe of an arbitrary shape that forms at the same time give the flower a special charm.

    The easiest way to twist the finished strip of fabric around the usual knot, which must be tied in the middle. It should not be dense, as this is the future middle of the rose. Next, the two ends are folded together and on a flat surface spiral wound around the middle. In this case, the bands should be slightly twisted both individually and between themselves. That the resulting "snail" does not break up, it can be fixed with pins. From a stripe 40-45 cm long and about 1.5 cm wide, a rosette with a diameter of about 3.5 cm is obtained.

    Ready flower must be fixed on a mug of felt or some other non-crumbling fabric. It can be sewed with threads or glued.

    3. Making roses from curly strips of fabric

    These roses can be made even from the thickest fabrics, since the petals on it are formed not as a result of twisting the material or its deformation, but due to cutting out the figured edge.

    If the fabric is not frayed, then you can simply cut out a strip, one edge of which will be wavy. The shape and size of the wave may be different, but it must necessarily be smooth at the top. Loose fabric must be processed, you can also cut it twice, stitch, twist and carefully straighten the seam.

    4. Making roses with smooth edges

    This variant of making roses from fabric is rather laborious, however, the flowers are unusually beautiful. Especially festive look satin bouquets, which can be given for a wedding or birthday.

    First, the pattern is made, which is a bit like a fish. It should be completely symmetrical both along and across.For starters, it is better to make a small rosette, and take a fabric that is not slippery. Therefore, it is enough to cut seven-eight petals 6-7 cm long. Each of them along the length folds in half the face to the outside.

    They then overlap one another so that the left half of the raw edge of one petal is aligned with the right half of the raw edge of the other petal. In this way, all the petals are chained and pinned.

    Further, the entire workpiece at a distance of 3-4 mm from the rounded edge is sewn with small stitches and tightened. Now it remains only to gently roll the roses from one end to the other. In this case, it is necessary to fix it from the bottom with threads, and then attach decorative green leaflets there.
