This is another of those crafts that I've sat there and admired from afar but I haven't got into it much because. It's such a beautiful craft but like free form embroidery is very much something that I'm not overly interested in.
So what is Ribbon Embroidery?
It's using a ribbons to embroider a pattern onto fabric. It's commonly used to show flowers as they lend themselves to the medium.
But it is so much more than just sewing the ribbon in as the amount you pull it can make a big difference.
These two examples are from this website... It has some easy to follow instructions as well.
This came from a lovely lady over here and her work is lovely too.
How to find out more?
I found some basic instructions at the better homes and gardens website.
And of course there are some ribbon embroidery magazines around. So pretty.
P.S. join me tomorrow for S is for...
