I have to admit when I first saw this book I was a little unsure how you could fill a book on making Silk & organza ribbon roses, and quite what you would use them for. However, once I opened the book I was wowed! The roses in this book are truly stunning and can be used for a range of projects including quilts, fibre art, embroidery, card making, clothing embellishment, to add to bags, jewellery boxes or jewellery.
The book starts by covering techniques and materials; there is also a stitch gallery too. Then each chapter covers a few different roses, and other designs which work well with the rose such as birds, butterflies and other flowers. Each project tells you what materials, threads and needles you will need and then tells you how to make each part of the rose with photographic aids. If you put together all of the projects in the book you can great a gorgeous sampler (template in the back of the book.)
