Hello crafty friends! Today I have something a bit different to share with you. I was encouraged by a sweet lady to try ribbon embroidery. I've never done this before and thought I'd give it a try. I cannot say that it is my talent....but I did finish what I started. There are many many ways to do this skill but I tried a free hand on a small bag that I found. It was a material with a looser weave that I thought would be easier to let the ribbon pass through.
I used an upholstery needle to fit the ribbon through the eye, and plunged right in. I used four different ribbons, but all were satin and were very smooth to go through the fabric. I struggled with getting the ribbon to lay lay just the right way. :)
It was an interesting project, and I'll be adding an insert to the bag to protect the backing of the work. I have yet to find the right material....I'll keep looking.
Here are some pictures of the little panels that I worked on a little closer. I tried to make three different kinds of flowers....yes, feel free to laugh. I almost didn't share this...but I suppose it's all part of the crafting process.
Thank you for taking the time to drop by and check out my blog! Praying you have a lovely day!
