Rainbow Rose

Do you know rainbow roses? Real roses colored like rainbows? They're made by splitting the stem in four and putting each part in a different food coloring bath. The stem sucks up the coloring and the rose should color like a rainbow. Sounds easy, but after trying several times with no rainbow coloring of my roses at all, I gave up.

But then I saw a crocheted version of the Rainbow Rose, so I made that one!

For the Princess Dress I'm working on for some weeks now for my daughter, I've made this Rainbow Rose with leftovers from the Love&Peace Dress. It was just what I needed to get in the mood to finish the whole dress. Sometimes I start making something and then, just when I only have to do the seaming or only have to put on three buttons, I can't find the zest for it. Some projects are flinging about for years and out of sight is out of heart. The dress is lucky, it's still in sight, so it's not forgotten yet. And now that I found this rose to put on, we're back on track. Only have to do the trimming.

You can find the rose pattern here.

  7. That is too funny, I love your crocheted version, and I imagine that to color the rose one needs dye much stronger than food coloring! i do have a bush of white roses with a few first blooms, so maybe i'll give it a try!Thanks for sharing on craft schooling sunday!

    1. Food coloring is what the instructions said. If you want to try it yourself: you can find instruction for making the roses all over the Internet. Hope you will show us your results!

It will make such a gorgeous decoration. Thank you for sharing it with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop. Have a lovely week!
