Moses supposes………

           A while ago I needed to make a rose embellishment for a secret project (which it is ok to tell about now) I had a look round and found a few ways of doing them that I thought you might like to see.
This is the first one which I found here

Here is my try. It all starts with a simple circle.

I then made some of these based on a paper rose that I have made at  crafting class I once went to.

This also starts with a circle that you make into a spiral

Dab some glue in the centre of the circle and start to roll the spiral, gluing periodically. I push the centre out while the glue is still wet to give it shape.
Finally this rose is the simplest cut a strip of felt 10 cm by 1 cm

Roll round a cocktail stick glueing every now and then and at the end of the strip.

This last one starts with a strip too, just do a running stitch along the long side and pull up to ruffle it.

I used them here.
