The only pattern I have is the one from Toba Garrett's book. However, when I need to do brush embroidery, I just look on the internet for embroidery patterns or in craft stores at embroidery books. A lot of times, I end up creating my own designs by using cookie cutters, etc.

The way I learn it from the Wilton Class, is you make the required design on your fondant cakes, with buttercream then use a small brush to pull the buttercream for example a flower

I use my cutters to imprint the design.

I'll also try, i like doing it my teacher said she only does it for special people, on buttercream, take one of your flower cutters just as a line to follow, pipe a thick outline, i made my self a brush, i bought a set that were really stiff so i kind of cut into the brissels to make them uneven, you use i think almond extract or clear dip your brush in it you'll know when you need more , and start at your line and pull twards the middle of the flower not all at once it will take a few pulls for each one depends on how much you want, i've added a darker color, like pink and a darker pink and blend after i finish the flower. hope this kinda makes sense

Yeah! I know how to do it. I just need floral patterns. I use rubber stamps to lightly imprint especially scroll designs but just need some design for florals.
