Handmade Sewing Pattern Tissue Roses

This is my first project submission.  I absolutely adore this site and all the talent that is displayed here.  I see something new each time I visit! 

The roses displayed are handmade by me...once I made the first one I kind of got addicted!  Then I HAD to make a get the picture! The roses are made out of vintage sewing pattern tissue much fun to make.

All my best to you all...

I love the paper pattern roses - they are so sweet! And like Candy said, I can see them at a bridal shower or reception.

Your vintage pedestals are nice and so versatile.

Thanks for sharing - looking forward to more posts from you.

bluejean writes: I love anything that has to do with sewing notions and your use of patterns to make paper roses is so creative. I especially love the subtle yet graphic element and how each one is unique.
Thank you too for the tip on candle holders vs wine glasses for the base on your pedestals. Posted: 12:28 am on July 21st

Collquest writes: Wow! Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! My local thrift store sells everything $1.00 and under 1/2 price on Saturdays...Have to admit I went a little nutty with purchasing the wine glasses. I found the candle stick holders work the best for the pedestals though.
Anyway, all my best to each one of you!!

Maybe I can create a few to entice patrons to want to make their own. Thanks!!!!!!!! Posted: 5:44 pm on July 20th
