Step 1: Make a 'spider web' of straight stitches. Make sure to leave an opening in the center, you will be bringing the ribbon up through there.
Step Two: Bring the ribbon up from the center of the spiderweb.
Step Three:When you bring the ribbon up, begin alternating the ribbon weaving. Go under one floss straight stitch and over the the next. It will wrap nicely into a web rose. You'll learn how loose or how tight to pull the ribbon with practice. Try to pull the ribbon through nice and easy! Let it gather into little rose petals :)
Here I used contrasting floss to show you how to over - under - over - under. With some practice, you can make lovely roses!
