I started playing around with the sari ribbon last night. While I have other ideas on how to incorporate this ribbon into my jewelry, I got caught up in a show and mindlessly started making some roses.
With the variations in the dye and the frayed edges the end result looks more like a grungy peony than a rose, but I like it.With a silk or organza ribbon the result would be more probably be more elegant.
If you don't know how to make these I found this online reference page with instructions. The tutorial shows making the rose with 5 stitches, but I used 7 , I guess as long as you use an odd number then the weaving will always work out.
