Twirled Ribbon Rose

 

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.
