Basis of this rosebud is a Detached Chain Stitch,
keep the ribbon as flat as possible to obtain a
full bud.
Stem Stitch is added in embroidery thread.
Two ribbon stitches to form the calyx.
Two small straight stitches at the tip
of the bud in green thread ( or the colour of the bud ).

Create two Ribbon Stitches ( 7 mm )

Slightly crossing over at the tip.
Like an almond shape.



Make calyx from 4 mm. Green Ribbon

stitches first then the centre stitch.
Once again two straight stitches at the tip.
