Spring is near and we’re getting ready for the season by making a Sweetheart Rose Maker Bouquet.
Place your piece of fabric between the two template pieces. To secure the fabric, use a pin on each end through the marked holes.
Use a needle and thread to sew a gathering stitch along the seam. The template has a marking- START! to let you know where to begin. At the first corner, you will begin to fold the template as you continue to sew. We found that using a Wonder Clip helps with keeping the template in place.
Stop sewing once you reach the mark- STOP!
Remove the top part of the template, the inner part will be inside your fabric. There are two options when removing the template. You can pull out the template or you can turn your fabric inside out as you pull out the template. Turning your fabric inside out allows you to hide your seams. The flowers in this post did not have hidden seams as they were used to help create the stems for the floral arrangement.
Now that the template is out, there is one last seam that needs to be sewn.
Pull thread to gather fabric.
A hair pin is included in the Sweetheart Rose Maker package. Place the pin on one end and wind up the fabric to create the rose shape. Once complete, use needle and thread to stitch the bottom which will secure the rose shape.
Don’t forget! There’s still time to enter our giveaway!
