NPC30: Wreath of Roses


 


This lovely, traditional rose wreath design derives from a pattern originally printed in an English ladies magazine dating from the 1920's. 

The pretty rose wreath looks gorgeous as a Clippy Cover Girl bag insert but makes an equally charming centre for a cushion. 

This particular design is worked on a 10 Count plastic canvas, in tent stitch. This stitch is explained in the downloaded materials. Full instructions and a colour chart to follow are also included in the download below.

The panel measures 22cm (8.6 inches) by 29.5cm (11.7inches). If you are making the bag insert there is no background to be stitched, just the central motif, and so a design like this can be completed in a few evenings. 

Once the design is finished a coloured sheet of card, material or foam is placed behind the canvas to provide the contrasting colour. Although we have used a mauve sheet of foam here, a white, cream, turquoise or pink background looks equally pretty. You can change these sheets from time to time to suit your mood or to match your outfit. 

 

The Clippy bag  and plastic canvas are not included in the download, but can be purchased from our shop.
