Hand Embroidered Wagon Wheel Rose

This tutorial is for how to make a hand embroidery rose using the wagon wheel technique. For this tutorial, I used the full 6 strands of embroidery floss.

Step 1 – Draw a pattern for your hand embroidery rose

Draw your pattern

Not sure which disappearing marker to buy. check out this blog post

Draw a circle. This will roughly be the size the rose will end up being, so make sure you draw the right size. Next, we are going to draw five lines coming out from the middle. Try to make the five parts as even as possible. You should have a wagon wheel pattern.

Step 2

Bring your needle up through the middle of the wagon wheel and follow your five wagon wheel lines. You should now have a wagon wheel with the spokes outlined.

Step 3

Start your needle close to the center of the wagon wheel bringing your needle up from the back. Next, we are going to weave the needle in and out of the wagon wheel spokes. The pattern is over and under.

Step 4

Keep weaving your needle (over and under the spokes) until your wagon wheel is almost full.

Tips and Tricks:

>Do not pull the embroidery floss too tight, this will ruin the wagon wheel rose and make it look all warped. Let the floss be looser sitting compared to other embroidery stitches.

>When starting the wagon wheel rose make sure you have a lot of thread on your needle

>Try using two different colors or multi colored embroidery floss for a different look.
