Hey! Hope you are having a lovely, crafty day!
This is a Baby Dedication set. Its worked in a love knot or Solomon's knot stitch. Just a simple round yoke and a pretty sheer ribbon rose for embellishment. Something I really don't blog about much, but if you've been following a long time you'd know, my love of ribbon, even more than crochet. Yes, its true! :) I make and sell hair bows and do weddings too. Maybe I'll try to get a few photos next time to share with you if the Bride to be agrees to let me use some photos on my blog.
Here's the full dress.
and of course what vintage lacy theme set would be complete without an old fashioned bonnet?
Here's how you make the rose. You can make it as big or small as you wish. Here, I've used 7/8" sheer white ribbon, needle and thread.
(first photo is blurry, sorry!)
Fold ribbon down as shown above.
Roll until you reach the edge of the folded piece.
Fold down/back, away from you, as above.
Take a few stitches with needle and thread to secure every so often. Continue with these steps, fold back, roll, stitch until you have the largeness or smallness of shape you like and sew to any garment, hat, bag etc. as you wish to embellish. :)
Enjoy your Ribbon Rose!
Here are a few other ribbons, the aqua polka dot was 2" wide and the ballet pink rose was 1 1/2" wide.
If you work these roses, send me a link to your photos!
I love seeing your projects and creativity!
Happy Crocheting...and Ribbon Crafting!
