So much fun and so easy to do if you have a pleater.  It is just a matter of adjusting the needles to the width of the ribbon…

I used your No. 99 32 mm width.  For the double pleated flower I used 4 packets of colour 99. 

14 x  12 inch (30 cm) pieces.  I angled the ends and hand stitched them.

They are so easy to do, you could do several roses in a morning.

it is fun to do a couple of widths at the same time or use organza and silk… so much fun. 

What makes it so wonderful is your silk.  When I return I will do more… so delightfully easy.

Thank you Karen and I hope you had fun teaching at Piecemakers!

 

Enjoy the rest of this week stitching world and hold thumbs that the fires in Cape Town are brought under control very soon. So much damage already.

 

Take care
