    I have been looking around for a good pattern for fabric roses to add to my wedding gown. This is EXACTLY what I was hoping to find! Yay! Thank you! 😀

    thanks so much for posting this tutorial. i originally did get the idea for the flowers from etsy. i was going to purchase them to make a little cluster on the shoulder of my baby sisters wedding dress. but then i thought it would be so much more special if i could make it for her and she could save forever. it certainly looks a lot easier than it is for a beginning sewer/crafter like me. i’ve found such pretty colors and materials and i’ve been sitting here staring at it all trying to figure out the secret. with the wedding 5 days away, it was a relief to find this. thanks so much.

  3. […] know the song from Singing in the Rain it is even more crashy-burny. I made a rose a la this wonderful tutorial. Maddie’s recent post reminded me that my rose was sitting on my Sewing ‘Studio’ […]

  4. HI! I love your tutorial, especially the portion on why we should choose certain fabrics. I plan to make my bridal and brides maids’ bouquets as well as loose blooms to place around the base of my tiramisu wedding cake. You’re the greatest! Thank you so much for sharing!

    • Hi Jamie – I thinks it’s so cool you’re making flowers for your wedding and would love to see pics! It sounds like an Indy bride wedding? My favorite kind.

      I use the silkessence fabric from Jo-Ann for the best results, but any polyester will do.

    These are beautiful and so easy to make. I’ve made some for corsages and hair accessories. Fantastic and thank you for sharing.

    Thank you so much! I was able, upon first try, to make a decent looking rose, following your ttutorial! I have been trying unsuccessfully to make those rolled ribbon roses, and I just can’t do that. Is there a place where I could see how you have finished the back/bottom of your roses?

    Gorgeous roses! I would love to try, but I have to get re-aquainted with my sewing machine
    Thank you for sharing your secret with us

    Hello from Australia:)

    Very nice and using lining is a good idea–the burnt edge give the rose a special touch.

    Thank You for sharing

    I just made one for my 4 y.o.’s flower girl dress. The bridesmaids provided their dress & lining fabric after alterations. It is the perfect addition to the sash on the flower girls’ dresses. Thank you for sharing this!

    • Nice job Mary, your little flower girl is going to look so cute!

      In case I haven’t said it lately to all the commenters – thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a note!

    • Thanks for the comment Marissa. I couldn’t see your photos on facebook, but I really liked the baby hair bows on your blog! Are you going to make some flower headbands too? That would be cute.

  12. Hello there and greetings from Finland! 😀 (or actually Sweden atm)

    I am a bridal seamstress who has made roses out of satin in many different ways and with different tools, but this is the most realistic looking rose, an easy-to-follow tutorial from a most generous crafter. Thank you!

  21. Prekrasne ružice, oduševljena sam njihovim izgledom! Hvala vam što ste podijelili s nama svoju kreativnu tajnu! Pozdrav iz Hrvatske :)))

  22. Hi Duhbe, just finished making 3 of your beautiful roses – they are so easy and very effective. Burnt my fingers a couple of times, but no major disasters.

    I teach basic sewing skills to unemployed women at the Anglican church in the coastal town of Margate on the south coast of Kwa Zulu Natal, in South Africa, and am always on the look-out for novel ideas for items we make to sell to raise funds and also give the students ideas of how to use their skills. The first thing I’m using your roses for is on a coat hanger cover I made today – quilted and beaded (my first attempt). Then I’ll be embellishing some basic “tote” bags I have in mind, and then …. who knows, the sky’s the limit!!
    Thank you for sharing your talent with us.
    Lots of love, Angela

  23. Awesome, thanks! These are so cute. I’ve been wanting to know how to make this kind of thing and yours are really pretty.

    Cute blog, by the way! I just found you, and I’ll be subscribing. 🙂

  24. I am 76 yrs. old and your instructions for making these fabric roses inspired me so I created some; then,I decided to make fabric gift bags & attach a rose to it. I have given out several and the feedback is encouraging so I am proceeding, hoping to create a business out of it. I do not know how to create a website yet but maybe I’ll learn to do that too. Thanks to you for sharing your instructions. Irene

    Thanks for this – I needed to decorate the bridesmaids’ dresses for guys and dolls with over the top roses so have used satin and chiffon – they look fabulous!
