Embroidery rosettes barrettes

Originally uploaded by wencrafting

Along with the butterfly barettes, i also use silk ribbon embroidery for the felted barrettes. I had done some simple ribbon embroidery on tissue cozies two years before and then I put the ribbons in storage. Since I have made the decision to work on what available materials and stash I have in storage, I pulled the ribbons out and the dusty pattern book and started them on these barettes.

I like how the rosettes turned out but I am not happy with the sewing of the felt pieces together, I really need more practice on the sewing machine.
