Finished design size ~ 5 ½” diameter
A small project for your sewing space or for giving as a gift. This decorative and functional piece combines a
great variety of techniques including patchwork, quilting, fabric ruching, embroidery and dimensional work.
Discover how easy it is to make double-sided fabric and use it to create dimensional roses, semi-detached
leaves and a raw edged, embroidered tag.
Dimensional roses can be made with any light weight fabric and can be added to a wide variety of projects.
Attach them to a headband, cushion, quilt, embroidery panel and more.
