    I think these would look very interesting if you put them on sticks or stiff wire for stems and made some leaves and made a whole bouquet of different sizes in coordinating colors and maybe even some made of a lace-trimmed fabric to put in a vase…I think they would look much better than store bought fake roses as the shabby chic look of them gives them a lot more personality.

      Totally agree! I need to come up with a new flower arrangement as James accidentally broke one of mine so this would be an awesome idea!

    Oh! The roses look so real to me; better than the fabric roses you find in stores. How about using them on headbands, purses or dresses?

    This tutorial is one I’ve never seen. I am learning as many fabric flower techniques as possible. T-shirts are my usual work attire, even though I dislike them. I want to embellish every single one with a variety of blooms so they aren’t so dreary. Thank you for this tutorial, and I hope to stumble upon many more!!!!!

    I have some organza ribbon that would work perfect for this craft. From CA, thanks for the inspiration!

    I love these little flowers, and my mind is going crazy thinking what else I can use them on, hair clips, head bands, on my dress, on a hat, on wreaths, the possibilities are endless, thanks for the great idea.

    I would put them on wrist corsage, head band, hats.

    When my children were still at home and I was doing more crafts, I added my roses to everything I could think of. On floral wire, I made bouquets…….sometimes just a single rose with a bit of greens and baby breath in a bud vase with ribbon around the vase. Three of different sizes for spring corsage………….a couple with greens to top a gift which you’ve wrapped both ways with ribbon…..fill a flat bowl (like a veggie dish)so the flowers look like they’re floating. The one I liked best was a rose or two of bright red organdy with off-white baby breath and work in a holiday ribbon of your choice ……then lay onto branches of the Christmas tree. I once did a whole tree like that with tiny white Italian twinkling lights. I used natural color raffia instead of garlands or tinsel and thought the tree was the prettiest one we’d had.
