[Rose Bomb Pattern]

For our purposes, a Rose Bomb is basically a fancy looking bean bag.

Because of different PC and printer resolutions, I don't know how big the pattern will look, but it should be about 5-1/2" across. The pattern does not have a seam allowance, so trace around the pattern then cut out allowing an extra 1/2". Do not cut out the middle. Flip the pattern before tracing the second piece (this will make it easier to line up the two pieces). After stitching most of the way around the outside, turn rightside out. Partially fill with rice or dried beans. Do not pack in too much. Hand stitch closed and down in between the petals and around the middle section.
