Rolled Bullion Rosebud
Rolling the Bullions Together
Step 1 (Figure 1) In most patterns a circle with two vertical bars is the symbol for this flower. Place a Bullion the length of each line.
Step 2. (Figure 2) The next Bullion E-F begins at the top of the first bar and ends down underneath the Bullion on the second bar.
Step 3 (Figure 3) The next Bullion G-H begins underneath
E-F and ends at the bottom of the first Bullion on the second bar.
Step 4 (Figure 4) The next Bullion I-J begins underneath G-H and ends underneath the first bar.
Step 5 (Figure 5) The next Bullion K-L creates the point of the Rosebud. It begins underneath I-J and slightly curves upwards to a point approx. 1/4" above the other Bullions.
Step 1 and 2 (Figure 6) M-N and O-P Cross over each other to form this Calyx. Make sure that the Bullions fit slightly under the Rosebud so that it lifts the bottom a bit.
Iris is the easiest thread to use for this flower, however, to make a larger or smaller Rosebud try out different threads.
