Don't You Love Miniature Roses?

I know I do... I'm always on the lookout for a pretty one to add to my little rose garden! Just as gorgeous as their big sisters, their perfection in miniature is so intriguing!

Well, our Backward Rose suite would not be complete without a Mini Rose either! So I have designed this perky little mini rose just for you. It's based on the same principle as my original backward rose, working inside outward then back to the center, but in different stitches than its big sister.

This little rose measures just a bit under 2 inches. I hope you enjoy making a bouquet of them in many colors. Wouldn't these make cute pen or pencil toppers? Hmmm... Maybe they deserve their very own doily! (Hint, hint!)
