Best Mom Needleroll

This was designed as a needleroll on wide linen banding with a design woven into the edges so there was no need to finish the ends. The original was stitched with hand-dyed variegated thread - Caron's Wildflowers Aurora - and co-ordinating DMC flosses(500, 501, 603). The two lines at the top and bottom indicated the area where threads were removed and hemstitched so ribbon could be woven through to close the ends. I used a Swarovski Crystal Heart for the center but a button or charm could be substituted. With all the beautiful overdyes available these days - I suggest picking colors you like and go at it - have fun!
