Small Wound Rose Of Fabric

Cut from a true bias a strip of material one inch wide and four inches

long. Fold lengthwise through the middle. Turn the raw edges in on one

end, and gather one-eighth inch from the edge along the raw edges. Draw

the thread up to one inch and roll, beginning with the folded end, and

sew. A piece of tie wire may be glued inside the fold before gathering,

if desired. These little roses may be sewed on a stem or sewed to a

shaped piece of buckram which has been covered with silk. It may be in

the shape of a buckle or a circle and covered with these little roses in

several colors, pink, blue, and mauve. Sewed flat against a crown or on

a brim, they would trim a hat effectively.
