I tried making some ribbon roses tonight with the 7mm ribbon the instructions said use, and they were so tiny you could hardly see them...what could I be doing wrong? I didn't pull tight.

Hi, Eve - I can't tell you what you're doing wrong, cuz I can't see what you're actually doing - it may be that you're not doing anything wrong - maybe they're supposed to be that small? But the ones on the right look as thought the stitches are inside out or something?

Anyway, try this photo tutorial for the Fargo rose - maybe it will help:

Good luck!!

Hi, Jo - well, I think I found your tutorial on Sharon Boggan's site - I visit there often. So maybe we have "run into each other" on that site? Mary Corbet here, of needlenthread.com.
