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.

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.
