We wanted to give you a little gift for being members of our Fit for Art community, so here are the directions and pattern for an Organza Rose Pin. It requires both machine sewing and hand sewing and you can easily break up the steps to fit into your busy holiday schedule. Print the pattern and directions then follow along with these photographs of the construction steps. Organza petals are a little wiggly, but that is why they make such a wonderful flower. As with all sewing, if you work slowly and patiently you will achieve the best results. See how fabulously it finishes off this pieced black Tabula Rasa Jacket made with the Swing Variations.
If you want to make your organza rose into a poinsettia pin, stitch some gold or yellow beads into the center and add a few green leaves to the pin before stitching on the base.
Happy Sewing and Happy Holidays! RAE
