This lesson is for the Rose (Bara) design, this design was first introduced in Lesson 3 of the Level 1 Certification. This time the design is not only done on a simple division (first temari) but with a combination 8 division (second temari) which mean that the size has to be consistent on all 6 areas where the design is stitched. The third temari was "student" choice so I stitched it on a simple 10 so there were 5 sides on each layer and designed as I went; yes I did some un-sewing but it was fun to see what worked and what did not such that what resulted was a pleasant design.
