French Knot Roses
A French knot rose is ideal for making small flowers and roses.
Use 2, 4 or 7mm silk ribbon or 6mm organza ribbon
Wrap the ribbon once or twice around your needle as if you were making a French knot, but instead of inserting needle back into the fabric, gather the ribbon for 3 to 5 cm (I or 2 inches) as shown below…
◕‿◕ See how the needle is pointing to where the ribbon first emerged?
The gathered stitches are about 3mm (⅛”) apart.
- Insert the needle into your fabric and gently pull the ribbon to the back to form a small rose-like shape.
- You could add a French knot or a little seed bead in yellow to form the stamens.
