You came to visit me, because.....you want to finish our rainforest green rose, and that is what we are going to do, right now!!!
27. Please get ready: 1- a piece of cardboard that you cut on a 2" circle (please re-use and old box of cereal) 2-Cut 3 circles of organza left over with a 3.5" diameter. 3- A pin for a brooch or a hair clip. 4- Have the iron on, set high 5- Hand needle and thread.
28. Put a pin in the center of the 3 circles of organza, and hand baste them together close to the edge. Once you have gone all around, take the pin out, and DO NOT cut the thread.
29. Place the round card board or cartulin in the center of the 3 layers of organza, and now pull the thread, to close the fabric with some gathers, as you see in the picture.
30. Now, iron the circles with the cardboard inside.
31. Once it has been ironed, place the brooch pin, or hair pin in the center of the circle
32. The thread that you did not cut, is now going to be used to sew in the pin in the center of the covered cardboard. I did the sewing in green, for you to see it properly, but it will look better if is done in the same color as the circle. Sew the pin very well.
33. Now that you have finish sewing the pin into the covered circle, place it on top of the raw edges of the rose.....it should cover them easily. Secure them with 4 pins as you see in the picture. They are very easy to put, since we have fabric on the outside of the cardboard.
34. Now, with slip-stitch, sew in the base circle to the rose. You will be taking about 3 layers of the rose while you sew. Do a small stitch. There will be no way to see the ugly part of the botom of the rose.....everything will be....beautifully finish!!!
35. You have finished sewing the circle into the rose, so, make a knot, pass the thread in a long space and then...cut it!!! Aren´t you proud of the lovely finishing that you have done in your rose?? because I am!!!!!
36. Our rainforest green rose for St. Patrick´s is ready!!!! In this tutorial, I made the large rose that is on the neck line of the green blouse. This one is the most difficult one to make. The little ones, are cut on 1/2 inch organza strip, and so on. If you can make the large one, of course you can make the small ones!!! just try, and then please please, let me know how you did, and if the tutorial was properly explain for you. Tell me please my wrongs and my rights too!!! I love to hear from you!!!
I need to learn how to make an E-book!!! who will come all the way to the rainforest to teach me???
May God Bless you every day of your lifes!!!!!! till next time!!!
