Greetings, dear readers!

I have been trying my hand at creating vintage velvet roses...here are my first efforts.

I am thinking I'll make a little art quilt with the red/pink fabric. I'll incorporate stamping, embroidery, buttons, vintage and new trims, and of course, my roses!

 Isn't the fat, vintage fringe just wonderful? I love it!

If you recall, I created a little sampler from a vintage tea towel...I'm thinking of something along the same lines...Perhaps I'll use the colorful fabric for patches?

More soon! Hugs,
Paula Clare

Hi Paula,

Your roses are awesome!!! I can't wait to try my hand at making some.

With only a tad of time I went looking for inspiration...went to your Blogspot and 'Bingo' or I should say "Hi Ho Cherry Oh" (sp?) anyway...thank you for your sharing! Your blogspot is super...love all your artsy crafts and I'm sure I'll return soon.

Off to work now...

Be blessed.

Thank you ladies for your sweet comments about the shabby roses! I'm in the process (as I type!) of creating a tutorial for those of you who have emailed me and wanted to know how to make them! Stay tuned! Tutorial coming right up!
