More Roses Have 'Grown' ..

Hello my dear friends,

as so many times before, I couldn't stop at making only making one of my needle books with seam binding roses and I did say that I would maybe make more of them! So since I had so much fun making these roses ~ I did!

But I didn't just make anther one. I actually made two more needle books with roses 'growing' on them and I love the colors I picked. They have both turned out so pretty, just like the first one.

 I know that I am repeating myself  when I say this but I have to say it again ... it is so rewarding to have a simple piece of ribbon or in my case seam binding turn into a lovely little flower ... I love it!

And here are my newest creations ...

So many lovely roses!

I named this one ...

... 'Old English Roses'.

The roses were made from seam binding that is called ' rose beige'. It is such a lovely subtle color, a sort of old dusty pink. (On some of the photos the color is a little brighter due to the lighting.)

And this is my second needle book,

I  named it  ...

... 'Old Country Roses'.

For these roses I used three lovely colors of seam bindings ... rose beige, croquette beige and cruise beige ~ a lot of beige, I know but it looks so lovely don't you agree?! I am so happy with the way the colors just complement each other so nicely and I don't think anyone would have known that the colors are all from the beige family of seam binding if I wouldn't mentioned it because they certainly don't look it.

All three of my 'Rose' needle books will be for sale and available in my Etsy shop soon if any one might be interested in one of them. I will post here on Todolwen once the are listed.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today and I hope you have enjoyed your little stay here at Todolwen.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. Such a lovely Post. I enjoyed each picture.

  2. I think I said before that these are simply too pretty to put just mundane ol' needles and pins into. Only the very best of needles and pins deserve to reside in these!

  3. Sind die zauberhaft!! Winderwunderschön!
