Well I performed my MAGIC show at my local evening Neighborhood Group of American Sewing Guild (ASG) tonight demoing how to do this darling
Next month ASG evening mtg, I am doing the demo on how to do the five spoke silk ribbon rose with 4 mm YLI silk ribbon that I purchase just up the road from http://www.piecemakers.com/ in Costa Mesa, CA. I learned how to do these spider 5 spoke roses off of Angela's Blog - Dandelion Avenue having seen this darling Easter Dress ensemble at http://dandelionavenue.blogspot.com/2010/03/sre-easter-dress-finished.html. This style of silk ribbon roses are Super easy and I make more professional looking ones, then I ever did my attempts at buillion roses!! The "MAGICAL" madiera scallop hem is a technique I learned from Dr. Martha Pullen. I watched, rewatched & rewatched her DVD and now I have it mastered. The trick is symetrical mirror design & MUST have YLI Wash Away Water Soluble Basting Thread. Madiera books, YLI Wash Away Water Soluble Basting thread & DVD are all available at http://store.marthapullen.com/.
Can hardly wait til Saturday when at the baby shower, my friend who becoming a first time Mom, opens this for her darling new little girl, due in Sep. I am sure she won't get duplicates of it. I am also crocheting a scalloped edge onto a pink star flannel blanket for her. I hope I get done in time!!!
