Rose Lantern

Hello! It's Lola....again!! I know that it hasn't been very long since my last Bake Shop,but I just had to hurry and get a few ahead. These next few weeks/months are going to be crazy with Quilt Market rapidly approaching......yikes!! I hope you like it!


10" Chinese lantern
11 Fat quarters or 1-Jelly Roll
Adjustfabric quantity if you are using a different size lantern.


Step 1-Cut fat quarters into 2.5" x 22" strips. If you are using a jelly roll cut the strips in half so they are 22-ish inches long.

Step 2-Fold each strip in half, and run a gathering stitch along the bottom, securing at one end. You can use a machine, or do it by hand.
I did it by hand so that I could make the rosettes while I was waiting for kids at soccer, dentist, football, etc.




Step 3-Pull gathering threads, and curl strip into a rose.

Step 4- Apply Hot Glue to the back of a rose and randomly stick it onto the Chinese lantern
Step 5- Keep gluing them on until the lantern is FULL.
Step 6- Hang, and adore!



1 lovely Be-rosed Lantern. Wouldn't this be great in a girls room?


I'm putting mine in my studio because it makes my heart go pitter-pat!
These roses would also be fabulous on a pillow!! (Thanks for the idea Angela!)

If you have any questions, comments, or just want to say "HI!"
come see me at
Izzy & Ivy Designs or Lola...again!!!

This is such a great idea and oh, so pretty! Lots of these hanging from trees would be beautiful for an outdoor wedding along with the old canning jar lights. Or even for a girly b-day party.
