Sari Ribbon Roses

A couple of weeks back I purchased a large hank of sari ribbon.  I tried knitting with it and macrame but didn't get the results I wanted.

 Then I found a project that suited it perfectly - ribbon roses.

The sari ribbon has the ability to twist and turn and form 'petals'.  I am pondering whether or not to attach the wool felt backs to the roses or leave them as they are.  I think they will make nice brooches for winter attire and even look good pinned on a hat!

These are beautiful Simone and versatile too as you can use them as brooches, pinned on hats (as you said) or scarves and even to embellish a plain handbag.

They are, indeed, lovely. The colours are so vibrant and I like the way the fabric folds.
