About this design: Begonias bellowing blooms from hanging baskets and rows of  terracotta pots in the historical hot house at ‘Entally Estate’ Hadspen was the inspiration for this design.
Combining my love of working with silk ribbon to create the delicate flowers complimented  beautifully with the structure of creative canvas work. Hand painting along the edge of 7mm silk ribbon, then gathering the ribbon combined easily to form a Begonia flower.  At the request of my students, new canvas stitches were introduced in this design, complimenting the stitches used in previous designs.

How can I use this design: This series of small creative canvas pieces can be made into a pocket purse i.e.  a small bag with a long ‘handle’  that is worn as a shoulder bag, framed, made into the centre piece of a ‘green bag’, a small box cushion, the centre piece of a cushion, glued onto the cover of a blank book /folder or glued onto the front of a small concertina office storage system.
