Today, I decided to create my first shabby chic rose by following the DuhBe Fabric Rose tutorial which I mentioned in a previous post. Luci's tutorial is both professional and thorough.
It does involve a little sewing. I'm not the best seamstress so I chose the option of hand stitching the fabric. Sewing machines don't always cooperate with me. Of all the steps, I enjoyed melting the edges of the fabric with the candle flame the best.
So, here's my first rose. I added a few stamens for color and texture contrast. I definitely will make more roses.
