Today I am showing you how to make a Burlap Rose. Burlap is very messy and because it is a woven material it falls apart on the edges. I like my roses neat so here is my version.
Piece of burlap, 25 inches long (or desired length) x 3 1/2 inches wide
Craft Bond glue or Fabric Hot Glue
Small piece of matching felt
Metal Pin Back
Iron your piece of burlap in half.
Stitch another row of stitching right next to the first one.
If you used craft glue, pin the end of the rose so it stays together while it dries, several hours or over night. If you used hot glue, you can go to the next step right away.
Here is the finished rose. You can determine the size of the rose by using a longer or shorter length of burlap.
Cut a circle of felt the size of the bottom of the rose. Glue or stitch the pin back to the felt.
Glue or whip stitch the felt to the bottom of the rose.
Your rose is done. Use it on a pillow, purse or on your lapel.
Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial.
