We will be doing Dresden Plates in class next week (we are off for Thanksgiving, which gives me more time to prep), so I made a mini Dresden Plate. It is a little different from the tutorial I created before. Mostly it is different because I made the ends of the petals pointy rather than round. I might make a short tutorial talking about making pointy petals. We’ll see.

This Dresden Plate is a little larger than 7 inches in diameter. Petals were relatively easy to make. I sort of used the tutorial on the V& Co website, but really I just looked at the sizes and they type of wedge then did my own thing. It could have gone very wrong, but I got lucky. I am going to use this as an applique on a Sew Together Bag I am making.

  1. I love Dresden Plates. I need to remember to find my felt and make a mini-mini one to put on my older machine spool posts to protect the machine. I think it will be prettier than just the plain red felt circles.
    I’ve made both pointed and rounded plates in the past. They both have their challenges, don’t they?
    I don’t know why I’ve never thought to use a smaller one as an embellishment for a bag though. Maybe I have and just forgot? hahahaha
    Thanks for sharing!
