Bullion Roses



Rose bullion -you know, for making rose soup! I kid (and yes, I know it's spelled differently, mom). Just look at crafty_pants' blooming stitches. So, so pretty and sweet and boy, is that some impressive handwork. I love how she sprinkled it with French knots for little buds. Found this nice tutorial for making bullion roses for you, too!
