These are the EASIEST things to make.
This is all you need.
Round the edges of the rectangle.
But really, if you have a circle,
that will work also.
This is not a project for those with OCD tendencies.
If you try to cut this too even,
your rose will have no dimension.
Make sure that you leave that circle in the middle,
you will need that later.
Starting at the end,
put about 1 inch of glue on the edge
and start rolling.
Glue and roll.
Glue and roll to this far.
Glue on the leaves.
Glue that flap down over the leaves...
And you are done, almost.
I didn't like that big flap, so I just trimmed it
and added a little bead to the center.
Now really, who could not make these?
The bad news, after yesterday's manic wool moment of all those flowers...
By 5:00 last night, I had two hives on my face.
Big sad face here!
The eczema is back.
So, I suffered through this tutorial for all of you,
and put the wool away again.
Then I made these.
Simple, inexpensive ACRYLIC felt.
And proof that I finished the owls.
Last year for our open house,
I had made a lot of pillows.
They pose a storage problem.
My mom, on the other hand also made pillows,
but didn't stuff them until the week before the open house.
Storage problem averted.
And some more work on the granny squares.
one more time.
Feel free to share these directions.
I don't care if they are pinned or posted to your blog.
Just please don't paste them or pin them as your own!
I love to see what you make.
If you make some,
please email me and let me know,
or the link to your blog where you posted them.
I am going to slather more Hydro cortisone on my face
and shut all the wool in the closet for now.
