A few weeks ago, I decided to try making a fabric rose.
I found the pattern in a book I bought in 2013 by Shirley Bloomfield called “Beyond The Applique Garden” (ISBN: 978 0 9553499 7 3).
It only took a couple of hours to make, then I had a beautiful and unique brooch to wear on my jacket.
In the book, it’s called a ‘Rose Corsage’.
I hoped to be able to post a link to Amazon for the book but, unfortunately, it seems to be out of print. You might be able to get hold of a second-hand copy at Abebooks or other second-hand book specialist.
I'm working on a couple of other projects out of the book, so I'll write about those when they're done.
