so pretty! was it easy to make? do you use stretchy lace?
I used all the leftover materials from my other projects.
Lace is sort of streachy. i had a piece of leftover form doing my guestbook.
Big flower is super easy to make. You need to cut out of organza circles of different sizes. I used my kitchen (different cups, glasses, containers etc) to draw circles. Then you just burn the edges with the lighter a little bit and sew them all together. Embellish with pearls and there you go.
Next to the big rose on the right I just added some more lace. Folded it and added some pearls and other beads.
Small roses are a little bit harder to make. Actually, they are not that hard, but rather not very popular. Everybody here usually just roll the roses. I used to do silk ribbon embroidery before. So I used one of the techniques to make these roses.
Basically first with a simple thread you make five stiches in shape of the star. Then thread the ribbon in a big needle and tie the knot. Start with the center of the star and thread the needle under the first arm of the star and then above the secon, under the third, above the fourth and so on and on, untill you get a rose.
Here is a tutorial from the internet.
