A bag from an old pair of jeans gets the flower treatment.
IF YOU sew running stitches along one side of a long strip of material and pull the thread at one end, it will gather into a circular shape. Roll up the gathered side from the centre, continue to turn it round and round and you’ll get a rose. The longer the strip is, the bigger the bloom will be. Stitch on the reverse side to hold its shape. These roses can be sewn from practically any fabric to embellish bags, cushions and dresses.
