Assalamualaikum,

ikut my tips kata jangan lari dari 5 pleats ye...

5 pleats untuk ros 3 lapis je. kalau nak kembang lagi kena tambah pleat.

bullion dah kemas dah. ok dah tu.

me usually akan tarik keluar all benang pleat. baru me bullionkan. supaya bila streach my bullion tak nampak tertarik sangat.

banyaknye bullion ek. heheh rajin ah tu. bullion dah ok.

Salam Pah...
Quite new in your blog. Anyways, love seeing your effort and passion on needleart. Here, some of good tips to beautiful bullions:

1. Plan your colour. The colour you chose are very sweet. I suggest you grade the colours - darkest shade for centre, lighter for inner and lightest for outer. Then they would look even more natural.

2. What fds said is really important, yes we have to pull off all the pleating threads first before making bullions.

3. Use the right needle. We normally use only Miliner's needles, so it will look get the clean look, like what I saw in your blog... :)

4. As for bullion loops, what matters is the placing of each loop to create a so pretty daisy. When making the bullion loop, leave a little space while you scoop the needle into the fabric so that no petals would be 'left out' from the circle.

Good luck and happy doing the things you love!
