DuhBe’s Fabric Rose Tutorial

DuhBe offers a great little tutorial on how to make these realistic-looking fabric roses in 5 easy steps. The method involves making strips of fabric, and then clipping and melting the edges over a flame. Love that she has this on her post: “Rather than keep all my secrets to myself, I want to share this method with others. Some crafters will think I’m crazy for sharing my secrets for an item I sell in my Etsy shop, but I believe that sharing information contributes to the creativity of others and that is more important than me selling stuff.” Word!
I’d love to use this technique to make a slew of flowers to add to a rose umbrella!

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
