    I bought a pillow a few years ago on ebay. It is a rose shape with large individual petals, glued and sewed. The person had done it with vintage chenille on the face of the petals and a satiny material on the underside. Eash peal is filled with fiberfill. Anyone know of a pattern for this? I suppose I could take the one I have apart but hate to do it. Thanks.

    I think I have something similar in a Singer Reference Library book. It's an old book, but you might try Googling it to see if any of the patterns are available on the net.

    I found this online a couple of years ago. My sister wanted something to donate to her Moose Lodge in Bakersfield, and she said they got about 75 dollars in the raffle for it alone. The lady who got it was almost in tears she was so happy with it!!

    It does take a while to make, but it's well worth it. I made hers in good old cotton, darker tone on top. I added to this, no glueing at all but lots of hand sewing. I made more of the petals than called for, I wanted them to stand up more like a real flower. Plus I made them a little bit larger. And when finished, I sewed on some ragged yellow rug yarn on the middle of it like pollen, then sewed on a tiny honey Bee button.
    Here's the web site I copied so long ago.

    Someone had posted directions for this years ago and I saved them. So, I'm going to cut and paste them here, but I don't know who to give credit to.
    Rose Pillow:
    I've made quite a few of these rose pillows and they turned out great!
    For the pattern I've used an old shoulder pad and took the pattern from it to use as the small petal.
    For the med. petal, just add an inch all around, the larger petal, add 2 inches all around. Make a template from cardboard or paper. Make 5 large petals-4 med petals-3 small petals.
    My pattern version for Rose Pillows, you can change these directions to suit your needs. 
2/3 yd. Taffetta/silk/satin (your choice of color) 
2/3 yd. muslin 
1/2 yd. broadcloth (green) or use choice from above 
polyfil 
thread to match 
From shoulder pad--make template for petals -- 3 small--4 medium--5 large 
From large dinner plate, make template for circle-- for leaves, make 2 at least 3 x 5 from freehand 
Directions: 
From taffetta/satin--cut 5 large petals (2 pieces for each) 4 medium and 3 small 
From broadcloth--cut same as for taffetta above ( I do this so when sewing is being done, there is less puckering) 
From (green) --cut 2 large circles and 2 leaves, reverse template and cut 2 more. 
Leaves/: sew around leaves outer edge leaving the bottom open-turn right side out and fill lightly with polyfil. Stitch leaves 1/4" around edges and down thru middle (making veins) 
Place leaves inside of circle (one circle-then leaves-then another circle) make sure leaf bottom will catch with raw edges of circle. Sew around circle catching leaves and leaving enough room open to turn right side out. Turn right side out. Fill circle with polyfil--stitch around edge of circle catching opening--now stitch center of circle for veins--(your choice of how many times--mine as I stitched I made some curves in them) 
Green leaves and bottom now finished. 
Petals: 
sew muslin petals--leave opening at bottom. Turn right side out--fill lightly--stitch closed 
Sew taffetta pieces together leaving bottom open--turn right side out--with same size--place muslin petal inside of taffetta petal and sew opening closed. Repeat for all petals. 
Joining Petals: Row 1--pin 5 large petals in a circle overlapping so will fit on outer edge of green circle--gather petals at bottom if desire or just make a tuck or dart--once you have the right size--sew on machine at bottom edges all around connecting all petals. set aside. 
Row 2--using the 4 medium petals, repeat as for row 
1. 
Row 3--place the 3 small petals on top of one another and sew across connecting all three together. 
Hand sew from here on in: 
Place first row of petals (5) on green-fitting close to outer edge--whip stitch to green carefully so you don't go thru to other side. Place second row inside of first row and whip stitch edges to green. Last row of 3--place inside of row 2 (make sure you separate the bottom edges so you have an edge all around the 3 petals to whip stitch to green. 
To finish: 
Stitch where 3 petals meet petals of 2nd row--pull tightly so thread doesn't show--then stitch 2nd row to 1st row of (5) petals---when I stitched mine I whipped stitch close to the bottom of the petals. 
Using green thread--whip stitch around bottom edge of green circle including the leaves (top part of leaves leave alone) to first row of (5) petals 
Rose is now complete. 
Hope everyone enjoys and can follow my directions: I'm sure after your first one, the second comes easier. Also if you pin your project first, you'll get a better idea as how to it will look. 
Have fun, and hope this helps someone out. 
Forgot to give measurements of the petals in the above pattern: Just realized that there are different size of shoulder pads so here are the measurement of the ones that I've used: 
Small petal: 6 1/4" 
Medium petal: 7 1/2" 
large petal: 9 1/2"

    I have one on my bed that I have had for YEARS! Got it at a craft show. She made miniature ones with pins on the back to wear. She also added an elastic strap to them to make them into wrist pincushions.

    I did a google search on "rose pillow directions" and came up with this site: http://www.hgtv.com/crafting/fabric-...low/index.html Is this what you were looking for? There was also a site that had a pillow that looked like a gigantic ribbon rose, but that didn't appear to have individual petals.

    I made several of these pillows, transforming them into ring bearer pillows. Here's a couple of pictures.
