Needle painted Rose part 1

 

This project is realized with long and short stitch.

The purpose of this work is to carry out a needle painting project.

As usual, I will try to guide you step by step, using many photos and I hope that by following this tutorial you will have fun embroidering this rose easily.

If you haven’t already done it last week, the drawing for this project can be downloaded HERE

You will find the list of colors in the introductory article.

Flower’s top petals

These petals are embroidered with the colors n° B5200, 3609, 3608, 602, 3804, and 3685.

 

 

 

After having edged the top of the petal with split backstitch 1 thread, start embroidering with color 3609.

 

 

Continue with color 3608.

Finish the bottom of the petal with white B5200 and mark the shadow of the next petal by adding a few stitches to the right with the color 3804.

Embroider the back of the petal with white B5200 and highlight it lightly with a few straight stitches in color 3685.

In this photo, you can see the preparation of the next petal with the split backstitch and the direction of the stitches.

Start by filling the entire upper part of the petal with the color 3608 and add a few stitches to the right with the color 3804.

Continue by adding color 3609 as an extension of color 3608 and adding color 602 as an extension of color 3804.

Finish the petal by filling the still free part with the white B5200.

Start with the top petal. Border the upper part only with split backstitch then embroider it with a satin stitch and the color 3608 (the stitches are at an angle).

Proceed in the same way for the next 2 petals. Use color 3609 for the middle petal and white B5200 with a few stitches of rose 3609 for the lower petal.

Large petal on the right

This petal is embroidered with the colors B5200, 3608, 3609, 153, 3804, 3685, and 341.

I first started by embroidering the petal on the far right. Not being at all satisfied with the result I decided to undo it. However, I wanted to wait to see it next to the one we are going to embroider now. Please do not let yourself be disturbed by an embroidered part of this petal still visible in the photos!

 

 

 

 

After having underlined the outline of the petal with split backstitch, as usual, start by embroidering the right part with the color 3608.

Continue by adding color 3609 as an extension of color 3608 and highlighting the tip formed by the petal with color 3685.

Finish the petal by filling the still free part with the color 153.

Mark the separation between the 2 parts of the petal with split backstitch and color 3685. Then fill the entire upper right part with color 3608, following the direction of the stitches and leaving an empty space as in the photo.

Continue by adding the color 3609 in the extension of the color 3608 and also filling in the part of the edge left free previously.

Extend the color gradient using color 153.

Finish the petal by filling the still free part with the white B5200.

Finally, add a few blue stitches with the color 341 as in the photo. Shade the top edge of the petal with tiny straight stitches and color 3804.

Finally, mark all the outlines of the completed petals with split backstitch and color 3685.
