Twirled ribbon rose

 

The twirled ribbon rose is a wonderful stitch to use when making roses and rosebuds.  

 

 

Here I used my 7mm silk ribbon no. 43 on a size 18 chenille needle...  

 

Step-1 TRR    

1. Come up in the centre and gently twist the needle to form a neat tubular shape.  

 

Step-2-TRR  

 

2. Hold the twirled ribbon and insert needle back into the fabric ...  

 

Step-3-TRR  

 

  3. …twirl the ribbon some more with your fingers, hold the twirls whilst pulling the ribbon to the back of your work.  

 

Step-4-TRR    

 

4. Hold the twirls gently to support them...  

 

Step-5-TRR  

 

  5. ... pull very softly until a rose is formed and keep pulling gently until you are happy with the shape.  

 

 

Step-6-TRR  

 

 

  6. Use one strand of thread (matching colour or use a golden yellow) and make tiny stab stitches in the centre to secure the twirls. You could also add a yellow bead (or add more than one bead) in the centre.
