Curtain Insertion / Coaster
Click Here for Image
Comments: A motif that recalls medieval churches rosettes, very frequent in Italy. The central hole is rigid because of the insertion of a plastic ring , anf for this reason I suggest this pattern for curtain insertion, if you are not sewing-impaired like me: just sew the rosette to a white, light curtain and cut the hole on the fabric. Of course, you can use this pattern also for other uses, like as a coaster (in this case, substitute the plastic ring with a thread ring made with your fingers, otherwise the coaster would not be flat, or a motif for a tablecloth.
Size : 14 cm. (5 1/2 inches)
Material :Pearl cotton # 5, hook 1.9 mm (Boye steel#5), dark yellow; a plastic ring abou 2 cm. (3/4") diameter; you can substitute with Cebelia #5 or equivalent cordonnet thread (but the gauge can slightly vary); you may want to give a look to my virtual store if you need materials.
