The Handbook of Silk Ribbon Embroidery

Spiral bound
Based on material previously published as Beginner's Guide to Silk Ribbon Embroidery in 1998 and Silk Ribbon Embroidery: Designs & Techniques in 2002, this useful handbook provides all the techniques you need to create beautiful silk ribbon embroideries. Based on just three basic stitches and gathering techniques, learn how to stitch over thirty-five different flowers, including roses, geraniums, irises, pansies, sweet peas and more, and there are over fifteen more detailed projects to take your newly developed skills even further, all with templates and full instructions provided. As well as stitching, this book covers painting and stencilling backgrounds on to the fabric; painting the ribbons themselves; and how to mount and frame your finished pieces. A beautifully presented, highly comprehensive and inspiring book for anyone interested in silk ribbon embroidery.
