After deciding that I wanted to use flowers, I then looked into how I could make my own flowers. One style that I found that I hadn’t seen before is roses make of ric rac ribbon.
I found some at uni and thought I would give it a go. I started by cutting two long strips of ribbon. I then entwined the ribbons together by twisting the ribbons in each other. Once I got to the end I sewed along it to make in sturdier. I then started to twist the ribbon round to form the flower. After every twist I stitched the bottom few petal so it doesn’t fall apart. After the flower was formed, I then pulled a few of the petals out to make it look more like a rose.
I really enjoyed making these and like how they look. I am hoping to make more of these in different coloured ric rac.
