June's Little Roses


 I decided to go with a wonderful pattern from a lace lover she does bobbin lace and tatting and gives directions for this full rose on her blog, you can find by clicking on "a lace lover". 
I cheated a bit, because I was too excited and skipped a couple rings so it would go faster.

 I saw this idea of using the shear ribbon as a vase somewhere on the internet.  The ribbon is pictured a further down on post, it was on a gift that I saved.

After cutting the vase shape and using "Frey Check", I knew how long to make the stems.

Once you have the stems, you place them in the vase.
I recommend leaving your flowers with longer threads so you can sew the whole flower down!  I satin stitched the vase down on edges.


Now I had to find the right type of border so it all fit in the ATC Card size of  6.35 cm by 8.89cm  or 2.5 by 3.5 inches
I went with a pretty light brown lizbeth size 40 color number 698 and white. The rings were 3 double stitches separated by 3 picotss.  And chains of 3ds, Josephine knot of 8 half stitches and chain 3ds start again.
                       
Yes this is a needle book too :)

  1. I can't believe how clever you are! It is always a joy to read your blog!! The roses are pretty ( congrats lace lover), the vase is a super clever idea, but the whole is more than the parts. The josephine rings are your typical finishing touch!
    Soo well done!!!!

  11. Oh, I didn't know that maybe you could remember who? I did leave out a few rings, here and there, so I didn't follow it exactly but it is great Idea to roll it up!
