Oxalis Flower : Stumpwork

I'm making oxalis flowers with stumpwork embroidery.

I had been worried about how to make up a flower with petal parts, but could sew them onto a crocheted flower center and adhered them to a bead cap, and make them one part.

Butterfly in the Benthos : Hairpin Lace

Finished a macaron pouch I've been interested in.

The base is made with a kit of "Macaron Strap", and I used a scrap of cloth in my stash and a 3D butterfly motif.

* Butterfly in the Benthos *
Macaron Strap (Lady Boutique Series no. 3366)
Braids and Motifs of Hairpin Lace
DMC Spécial Dentelles #80
scrap of cloth、tekno rote (plastic wire), fastner, etc.

Coins inside.
The butterfly motif is from "Braids and Motifs of Hairpin Lace" (arranged).
It's so little for usual hairpin lace with #80 thread that I used mock hairpin lace technique (pearl tatting + crochet).
And tekno rote was used in the center to raise wings.

Ronde : Tatting Lace

Finished a rosette motif with Interlaced Rings.

Little rings on chain like a shamrock are external, and the inner part consists of joined split rings' circle.

It's possible to adjust interlaced rings' shape some and oblong Easter decoration motifs like an egg are on "La frivolité aux navettes".
The 3D feeling and gorgeousness make motifs more enjoyable and I would like to make more variations.
