Kat thought it might come in handy, for some special occasion, to know how to make silk roses.
So we made a couple of practice ones. My silk yardage was almost gone, so they were quite short, but she knows the process for future reference.
We investigated the idea of adding stamping to the silk for some pattern in the roses.
|Second: fold in half, sew a running stitch along raw edges, gathering and winding and tacking every few inches|
|Two color stamping|
|Mine: very open and not full, but flowery|
|Kat's: tighter and more rose-like, with ideas for future tries.|
