#965 965 - American Beauty Rose

The American Beauty Rose, introduced in the U.S. in 1886, is a long-blooming, strongly-scented deep pink hybrid perpetual rose and is stitched here with a new variation of the traditional Brazilian embroidery bullion rose. Ciré and a Millefiori original, the raised buttonhole stitch, add extra dimension to this perpetual beauty.


This design also features the Punctuation Lace Rose made with the comma (a combination cast-on/bullion) stitch which was one of Rosalie’s first stitch “experiments” many years ago.  Pale yellow moonbeam coreopsis, pink carnations, pale blue daisies, eucalypts and lush new lady fern couching complete the design. 

A stitch guide and finishing suggestions are included with all Millefiori designs.

#963 963 - Summer Floral

Design now out of stock. How many ways can one make a lazy daisy stitch? Let us count the ways.


An elegant dynasty of noble midsummer-blooming flowers graces this Brazilian dimensional embroidery design. Attending the regal Queen Anne’s Lace are her royal court – two spectacular Duchess Dahlias, heirloom Esther Reed/Shasta Daisies and a lovely Princess Flower. ‘Royal Velvet’ Crepe Myrtle and delightful Daisy Maiden Flowers dance through the design as Maidenhair and Lady Ferns hover in the background.


Several variations of the ever-popular lazy daisy stitch are used for both flowers and leaves. In addition to the traditionallazy daisy, other techniques include the reverse lazy daisy, side fly stitch leaf, one-step leaf and stem, lazy satin daisy, and the Brazilian or two-step lazy daisy. A stitch guide and finishing suggestions are included with all Millefiori designs. This intermediate-advanced level design is perfect for class teaching.

#962 962 - Gingerbread House

The Gingerbread House is a refreshing and calorie-free way to satisfy your sweet tooth and your stitching fingers at the same time.
Stitch this delightful Gingerbread House surrounded by holiday greenery and decorated in only the most delicious candies of the season. Dream on cotton candy clouds; munch on minty candy roof or door decorations, garden with gumdrops and lollipops. Treat yourself to a candy-pink cupcake in a chocolate bullion wrapper, or wander a candy almond path in search of old-fashioned Christmas ribbon candy. A marshmallow snowman with cinnamon-stick arms and chocolate chip eyes dances beneath double cast-on drizzle trees and adds sweetness to this Brazilian dimensional embroidery design.


Several original and advanced-level stitches are included: the crisscross satin stitch, Brazilian outline stitch, raised buttonhole stitch, Star-Fill, the barbed bullion, and a Millefiori favorite named “Stretch.” It’s a real temptation to embellish this design with beads and other sparklies, but no beads are used in the design as shown – the beautiful rayon floss does the job all by itself!


If you like sweets, take a look at Millefiori design #919 “Sweet Treats”, another calorie/stitch filled way to forget your diet.

This is an exciting little design that you’ll use from year to year to enhance a small tablescape to decorate your home each holiday season.

#959 959 - The Balance of Nature

“The Balance of Nature” is about the food chain as it relates to Brazilian embroidery and was inspired by the children’s rhyme, “There Was An Old Woman Who Swallowed A Fly…” 


The magnificent owl, a bird of the night but also a bird of prey, is associated with wisdom. Our owl is wise enough to capture some interesting floss creatures and flowers in Brazilian embroidery along with his lunch and their lunch and their lunch, etc. Innards include another kitty cat, a bird and a mouse that already has an “+” on its eye, plus sunflowers, monarda, asclepias and zinnia. The owl’s perch is a realistic log resting on a bed of ferns stitched with the Ridged Blanket Stitch. Other stitches include the Brazilian lazy daisy, using a technique first introduced by Maria Freitas on her “Birds” design, and an interesting method of making directional flowers. A stitch guide and finishing suggestions are included with all Millefiori designs. This is an intermediate-advanced level Brazilian embroidery design.


The design package includes screen-printed fabric, and the artistic stitcher has the option of framing the owl with a nicely-plump, well-fed kitty cat which can be embroidered or the enclosed pattern used for transfer to a wooden plaque. Instructions include ideas for finishing the “kitty frame” with paint, embroidery, quilting or needle punch.
