Excited to share with you my roses design! Idea of stitching a huge rose bouquet, ended up with six different (little) variations of them.
The design is simple comme bonjour! For roses I used woven wheel and for leaves I used fishbone technique. (click to get embroidery stitch guide, thanks Mollie ^_^)
Woven Wheel: this stitching technique is easy to work and creates stunning flowers that stand out from the material. It is usually started with five spokes, but it works as long as there are an odd number of spokes.
Fishbone: It requires us to divide the pattern into two and each side is filled alternately giving it a plaited effect in the centre, thus ideal to make leaves or feathers.
Besides, I wanted to share what color of a rose may symbolize and for which occasion may be presented to someone. 😊
Lavender color is always associated with royalty. Also, it can express love from first sight.
roses symbolize feelings of joy and delight. It is associated with sun, making these roses excellent for cheering people up. It can be used to express appreciation and platonic love for somebody.
Pink carries with it the connotation of grace and elegance, as well as sweetness and poetic romance. Dark pink roses are symbolic of gratitude and appreciation, and are a traditional way to say thanks. Light pink roses are associated with gentleness and admiration, and can also be used as an expression of sympathy.
Orange color roses – a literal mixture of yellow and red, orange roses were seen as a bridge between friendship symbolized by yellow roses and love represented by red roses. They can be an expression of fascination, or a gift to say ‘I’m proud of you.’
The blue rose means mystery, much like its mysterious origin. It symbolizes an appreciation for the enigmatic, the inexplicable is expressed by blue roses.
