Fabulous Silk Roses!
I was trolling around Etsy the other day, my favorite thing to do when I'm being too lazy to list something, and discovered this seller... SnazzieDrawers. Beautiful pictures, cute babies and gorgeous silk rose patterns. Now if you can't tell already, I'm a huge rose fan! I've been making them in some form or another for 20 years. So of course you know how creative people are...I was wavering between "Wow I really want those roses" and "Would I need to know one more way to make them?"
I even, in a passing conversation with an old friend, mentioned this! Money is pretty tight right now, didn't want to waste it on something I already knew how to do. However, I couldn't get it out of my mind, something about this seller kept whispering to me. Or I was just fascinated by the fact those babies would pose that way!
So, I picked out my favorite rose, bought it, printed off 13 pages (yes, really, 13!) of instructions! I picked this one first as it had machine instructions. Yep, I'm impatient too! And a few days later...viola'...roses!
