NOTE: Allow first layer of lace to extend over edge of pillow. Stop lace to leave a small circle of pillow showing on top center area. Hold lace in place with straight pins until glue is dry.

6.) Loop pearls four times (or desired number) so loops hang onto lace. Glue ends in circle, to pillow.

8.) Fold ribbon back. Pull thread to gather.

9.) Arrange in a spiral to create rose.

10.) Stitch bottom to hold it together. Make three roses slightly different in sizes.
