Tutorial: fabric roses

I made another bag (photo below) today and applied an white rose on it. It was sunny and I felt great when I started, but the weather was getting darker and actually stormy outside at the end of my photo session of a petty tutorial. Sigh. Please allow me to use those pics that were taken on a dark afternoon. I made an album for step by step tutorial for the fabric roses, if I could call it so. I hope it is clearly explaining!

pattern: Reversible Bag from BurdaStyle

cream colored nylon tulle


  1. Where did you find the lovely fabric for these two bags? Great job! I want to copy you!

  2. I saw your silver bag on Burda Style and am so glad that you posted a tutorial--thanks!!

  3. Lovely, so sweet of you to show us how. I am going to try it!

  4. The tutorial was great, and you could see the details clearly enough even on the white flower. I've been wanting to try something like this with a slightly heavier fabric, the idea of mixing it with the tulle will keep it looking light. Thanks!

  5. i like ur fabric rose tute. will be trying that out this weekend ;-) hopefully it will work with cotton fabric.... thank u!

  6. I really adore your un-reversible bag with posh!
