MAGIC....that's the fun part! What your looking at as you make these is the bottom...

I found it easier to just rest the rose on the table and turn..face side down...

They always turn out, everytime! Add embellishments of your choice!...Pearls, buttons, or simply nothing...


Think I'll add this one to this little dress I just finished for my Grandaughter....

The uses for these little Roses are just as large as your imagination!...

I hope that was helpful...

Would love to hear if you were inspired !

Have a "Rosey" day sweet peeps!



  1. eeeeewwww! I LIKE! I'll be making me one, for sure! Thanks!

  2. Love the tutorial Kathy and what a beautiful rose for your little girl's dress. It is so lovely. Your photos were great and I need to get some nice fabric to try this out.

  4. Thanks for sharing how to make these. I've made flower pins for years....crochet ones and some with purchased tiny ribbon roses that I cluster together, but I've never made the fabric ones before.
    I'm going to go see what is in my fabric stash and make myself one.

  5. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    :P Yes, Thanks so much for the great tutorial! I have been trying and trying to make these, and while I like mine enough, they never come out quite like yours! Well... Now I know why! I need to get that Tacky glue- I have been stitching mine, and let me tell you... It's not that easy!
    Thanks again, this is getting bookmarked in my ever growing 'More crafts to do' List!!

  6. Those are just so fun and funky. I love the material you chose, too.

  14. Hi Kathy,

    I want to thank you for the fabric flower tutorial. I just tried one, the glue is setting now. I made a smaller one than yours,
    it is 2" by 1ft. strip. It came out sooo cute!
    I want to make a necklace with a few of them of different sizes. When I finish I will post it on my blog!

    You're an Angel!!

  26. Hi Kathy,
    First of all I want to tell you how much I love that little dress. The fabrics are so sweet and the little rose pin is precious.

    I love you tutorial, you make it look easy. I usually sew mine but this looks easier and I think I'll try your method.


  27. Hi Kathy,
    I have made those out of crepe paper before when we were decorating for a baby shower and stuff and have done them and pinned them but never thought to glue them. Great idea. Course, mine were not as fancy as yours they were just simple, but love the idea of the glue. Your grandaughter dress is so pretty and with the rose embellishment I think she is gonna love love love it!!
    Thanks for taking the time to do that tutorial.
    It was neat, interesting how you tore the fabric as well. Cool!
    You have a beautiful week hon,
    Blessings Galore, Nellie

  28. Hi Kathy,
    O.K. now I have to unpack my fabric that I just packed for our move LOL. I really have to try and make a fabric rose. I love them they are just the sweetest ever and it looks adorable on your little grand-daughters dress you made for her...

    Take care and big hugs to you both,
