Denim Fabric Rose

This project uses the piece you cut off your jeans when turning them up. The width should be no less than 1 1/2 inch or you will not have anything to sew up at the back.

Denim Fabric Rose

What you need

Length of Denim or
Turned up Hem Cut off

Glue or Sewing thread.


Start by taking one end of the length. And begin rolling it loosely into your hand, you will see as you go, that it begins to resemble a rose.

You can make the layers more loose towards the end to portray an opening rose bloom.

Secure with craft glue at the back and pin until dry. Or hand sew the rose into place with small stitches.

I actually used hot glue which was super easy and popped a magnet onto the back.

You can use these roses for embellishing Hats, scarfs belts or pop them onto a pin for a brooch.

  1. Really cute! I’m going to make one for my mom!

  2. Make denim Denim Christmas Stockings. Will need to remember not to cut off the bottom. Might be an idea for the stocking–add a rose if the stocking doesn’t use a pocket.

  3. Good idea, can work with denim bags I make
