Directions

STEP 1

  • Stitch design centered on fabric over two threads.

STEP 2

  • Attach button to pinwheel centers using 1 strand of floss. “Flowing Bow” (attach as seen in photograph); thread 18” length of white ribbon floss through large eye tapestry needle. Put needle down through fabric slightly below button bringing needle back through. Remove needle; even up ribbon ends; tie bow and tack center using 1 strand B5200. Run ends of “bow streamers” as desired down through fabric loosely to add dimension securing ends on back of fabric through existing cross-stitches. Attach button at center of bow.
