NPC32: Rose and Forget-Me-Not Spray


 


A lovely, traditional spray of roses, forget-me-nots and other summer flowers forms the central motif of panel. The motif is taken from a mid 19th Century Berlin work design and a lace border has been added to complete the piece. The lace is dotted with a contrasting colour, to represent a narrow ribbon threaded through the lace. 

This panel has been designed to fit neatly into the sleeve of a Clippy Cover Girl Bag, but of course it could be used in a variety of decorative projects. It would make a sweet cushion, or handkerchief case.

This particular design is worked on a 7 Count plastic canvas, in cross stitch. This stitch is explained in the downloaded materials. Stitching in cross stitch on this plastic canvas gives a raised effect which gives the rose a pleasing slightly three dimensional appearance. 

The panel measures 22cm (8.6 inches) by 29.5cm (11.7inches).

These designs on plastic canvas are very easy to stitch and complete. There is no background to be stitched, just the central motif and so a design like this can made in a few evenings. There are 19 different shades of wool used in this design, and full details of suggested shades of Anchor wool to use are included.

Once the design is finished a coloured sheet of card, material or foam is placed behind the canvas to provide the contrasting colour. You can change these sheets from time to time to suit your mood or to match your outfit. It is also fun to decorate the finished needlework further by stitching pieces of old lace, buttons, or other accessories to the canvas, to make your own original work of art! 

The download below contains a chart to follow and full instructions for making this item. The Clippy bag  and plastic canvas are not included in the download, but can be purchased from our shop.
