Coming Up Roses

I had this long piece of ribbon that was just lying around, from a gift, so I thought I'd make another rose pin. I made this black one a while back and thought a cream colored one would be cute too.

I've since made a bigger black one. It was wrapped pretty tightly and only needed a few stitches at the end to hold it together.
This time, I had less ribbon so I wrapped it looser and used a glue gun along the way, an idea I got from this tutorial.

I love making stuff. I wish there was a craft store here!


  1. Wow, those are gorgeous!!! I'm going to have to try my hand at these. Now, how would you wear these? On your hijab? {Sorry for the stupid question!}

  2. Salaam sis. Masha'Allah those are sooo pretty! I love seeing the crafts other people make.

    Ma salaama....
