narrow satin ribbon width of thirteen millimeters (pink and green):
wide satin ribbon (two and a half centimeters) in white;

Take a white ribbon, and bend it in the middle at a right angle so that the top edge of the tape perpendicular to the lower leg. Lying horizontally end of the tape, too, descends, passing it under the tape and put next to the second end. At the top of our design should turn area. Now, holding the finger area, wrap the left end of the tape to the right and put it on top of the right end. Cropped extend beyond the ends of the tape and get an envelope.
Envelope sewn around the perimeter (on the edge of), leaving a thread with a needle in working condition without removing the thread from the fabric and cuts singeing, lest they fell. Then contract the thread collecting tape in the bud, and anchoring suture knot. Spreads "petals".

Elegant and quite natural looking flower wild roses can be made of satin ribbons. And, as you know, it is an ordinary rose. The proposed technique of manufacturing the decoration is more complex than the previous ones, but the result is worth it! So, for the wild rose of satin ribbons, we need:
meter white, pink or red satin ribbon width of five centimeters (for the flower);
ten centimeters pyatisantimetrovym green tape (for leaves of wild rose);
Yarn (iris) yellow;
thread to match the tapes;
needle (acute and long);
candle or lighter
felt or accessories for foundations;
To start making a rose petal pattern. The height of the lobe to be slightly less than the width of the tape, that is almost five centimeters. Beamwidth accurately about two and a half centimeters. Make a pattern, applying it to the tape outline and cut satin petals. If you want to accelerate the process of cutting the petals fold the tape in multiple layers. Do not bundle the pin it, which can leave unsightly burrs on the fabric. Please note that the base of the petal (straight cut) should be with edging tape, and its upper edge should be cut so that the tab on the top edge to do. This is convenient for the subsequent reflow petals over the flame, and to build the petals in a flower.
Cutting out six identical petals make another pattern that repeats the shape of the petals, but will only be five millimeters (one on each side) is less. And do the third pattern, and less than the second half a centimeter. For these patterns cut out another six petals middle and small size. After receiving three kinds of petals begin to melting their edges. Gently summing the workpiece to a flame, giving the petals almost die and become slightly wavy on the edge. To obtain a convex lobe, tan edge over the fire and holding nepodpalennuyu of the petals with your fingers, gently stretch the fabric in opposite directions. Pay attention! Pull the tape should be still warm: cooled Atlas will begin to tear. To make the petals even more similar to the real, alternating each petal keep the flame, giving the fabric the ability to deform.
Now we begin to collect a flower. First, we collect the lower tier of the largest petals. Take two pieces and add them overlap, to the edge of one petal half (height) overlap each petal. We sew the workpiece with the lower edge few stitches. They put the third petal that it also covered half the next workpiece, and attach it seam "forward needle". Putting all the petals of the same size and the closing circle in the ring, connecting the first and the last petal. Likewise we collect two tiers of pieces of medium and small size.
Fold tiers flower on each other (from large to small) and sew them, connecting the lower edge of the blanks. For midway flower take a small square shred, cut off from the tape, and it embroider French knot and make yarn loops. Embroidering round the middle of a flower, pulls it on a button and sew a button on the center of the upper tier of our wild roses.
For the leaves take a piece of green tape ten centimeters in length and process sections of the flame. Fold corners to the middle band, forming a triangle and sew superimposed at the bottom edge of the small dotted seam. Then pulls the thread and sew the extreme corners of the workpiece with each other. If you wish to open from the inside edge of the leaf is also sew ribbons. Having two or three leaves, sew them to flower. Ready wild rose flower is attached to the felt, on the basis of a brooch or barrette.
