Pink Spider Roses for Pink Saturday


Today for Pink Saturday I am showing you these Spider Web silk ribbon embroidered roses (also known as the woven rose). This is the first item I embroidered using silk ribbon. It is such an easy technique. I also found a technique using perle cotton instead of silk ribbon for an entirely different look. I used these roses on a pin cushion.

Here is an excellent tutorial for you on making these quick and easy roses that make beautiful embellishments:


SPIDER ROSE TUTORIAL

QUOTE:

"As lovely as soft bits of fragile crinkled silk,
These rosy blossoms, clustered thick
Upon the heavy drooping boughs,
When shaken by a summer wind,
Drop down in swirling showers,
And drift awhile about the ground;
Then gathered into frothy heaps beneath the hedge,
They spread a frill of rosy lace around the green lawns edge."

~ Leda Clements, Crape Myrtle

HAVE A WONDERFUL PINK SATURDAY EVERYONE!
