Just in time for Valentine’s Day a beautiful Red Rose to embroider!
This lovely embroidery flower pattern comes from a booklet by Belding Bros & Co. Silk Manufacturers, Revised Needle and Hook published in 1903.
The color plate pictured to the left is called the Liberty Rose. It accompanies the instructions and silk thread color chart.
Visit this blog post for another pretty floral embroidery pattern from this book.
You may be able to find some Belding Bros 1900s silk thread that will coordinate with the numbers given, but most likely you’ll need to substitute matching colors from a modern company.
This illustration shows which way to embroider your stitches to achieve the shading for the flower.
The color plate is a different drawing but the shading is the same for each.
