Rose Needlebook

Design from "Needle Painting Embroidery Fresh Ideas for Beginners" by Trish Burr.

I wanted the back petal to have more definition as seen in this second photo so I used DMC 150, 3685, and 154 and left out the DMC 3803 that I used in the first photo.

Washed and pinned to the ironing board to block and remove all the wrinkles and slight hoop marks. 

Ready to complete the inside.

Two pockets and two wool felt needle keeps. Fabric is a vintage rosebud cotton.

Bullion roses to hold on the buttons and felt.
