Free Tutorial - Bullion Stitch Roses

Tuesday, July 6, 2010
I've had a number of people ask me how I do my "Grub" roses, so I thought I'd put the instructions on the web for you to download.  I hope you can follow the "how to" step by step.  It is easier when I'm teaching a class and can get people to turn their work around the right way, or grab the needle before they push it right through or move their thumb to the right place, but hopefully the notes will be of assistance.

The tutorial is on my website - scroll down to the bottom of the page.  Here are a few examples of how I have used the roses in my designs. 

A bevy of scissor-keep pincushions:


And this velvet needlecase is one of my favourites:


And you might remember this little Etui:


Another pincushion:


You'll see more on my web page.

Happy stitching!
