Rose Favor from a Kit
at a Pennsic War Class
I made this as a sample for
a class I did, It's been worn, litterally kicked around
for three years, and washed more times than I can count
just by getting mixed in the laundry. The cloth don't
look too pretty, but the beadwork is peachy.
I didn't however knot somethign
as well as I should have and as you can see in the second
pic where the beads have fallen out, but see how the
other ones stay put, this is even after being washed.
If I put the effort in and back track the two rows to
either side and couch in a new replacemnt rows, all
will be well again, but I like to use this as a sample
to show how the stitch does exactly as I said it would.
Holds up and stays.
I used a rose, It's a pretty much a universal sign of
favor, and I get pretty much only women anyway, but
it's a really simple design. The beads are greasy yellow,
purple, green and white opaque 11/0 seeds.
