Carolynn--Bonnet stitch and buttonhole wheels

I thought I had this stitch until I looked at the examples others have posted!  I think it needs a heavier thread than what I used (5 perle cotton).  Because I thought it looked skimpy, I added the buttonhole wheels to the bottom; however, that obscured the loopy parts of the bonnet stitch--the reason for doing the stitch!  I'll have to try it again with different thread!

I rather like it just the way it is!

Fair to say we all loved the buttonhole wheel and your thread looks great on the cream and green fabrics.

Looks just fine to me! The wheels make it look really fancy.

Lovely combination with the buttonhole wheels Carolynn. Great work :)

I guess I have to chime in with pretty much the same, the wheels are wonderful in combination with bonnet stitch. It may be yours are longer than the examples so a heavier thread would have worked well. But I think they look just fine!
