Do you remember this Raised Rose stitch that I used in my Sampler Tree embroidery? I have had a few requests for a tutorial so, in this post, I try my best to give one!
I first 'found' this stitch by googling 'embroidery stitches' and looking at the images. Above is what I found. Hopefully you can just see the raised rose stitch. It wasn't a lot to go on but it looked just the sort of thing I was looking for to adorn another branch of my sampler tree.
It is difficult to take photos of such small stitches so I've started here with drawings which will hopefully give you a good idea of how to build your rose.
Now you've got the basic idea we'll have a look at how that looks with actual stitches.
I do find it difficult to take clear photos of such small details (even though I do have my camera set on the macro setting, before you ask!) but hopefully these will give you an idea of how you keep going around and around...
That photo at the top of the page is a sneak peek of a new embroidery I have been working on. I will reveal all when it has reached it's new owner!
Here is a few of them in a circle.
I hope these photos and words have been a help for anybody working on my Sampler Tree embroidery pattern or for anyone having fun with embroidery stitches.
One more photo today!
