What lines do you pull and not pull to make it look recognizable? I get it to look pretty good until I get to around no 7. Then It starts to look way off so I think I'm pulling some of the wrong lines in the earlier steps. ( I mean some pedals need to be pulled on both sides and some don't and I'm having trouble with that. )
Thanks for any help on this matter! icon_smile.gif If you can understand me! LOL

Well, since no one else is answering, I'll take a shot, even though I've never actually done brush embroidery (haven't tried fondant yet). I'd say the important part is to brush all of #6 inward, and on #7, brush the top and right side inward. For #4 I'd only brush the top inward and I would brush all sides of #5 inward. That leaves: #1 - just brush the top inward; brush the left side of #2 inward; and the right side of #3.

Love that pattern, thanks for bringing it to my attention. Hope I was able to help.

thanks! That should help a lot! My brain doesn't compute those things well. LOL

Very pretty design! I've only tried BE in class, but have been wanting to try again. Mpetty, your plan sounds like it should work.
