Rickrack Flowers for Needlework Crafts and Ribbon Embroidery

Ribbon embroidery is a fascinating needlework crafts project, and there are unusual stitches and ways to make flowers. Most of the flowers are made with ribbon, but I have made some rickrack flowers recently that work well with the ribbon flowers.

You probably have some rickrack around the house from years ago. Typical of many of our needlework crafts, we use what we have available for frugal living crafting.

Here is a rickrack chrysanthemum made with running stitch on every other point of the rickrack. Once the hand stitching is done, just pull the thread to gather the flower.

Make a rickrack chrysanthemum with running stitch on every point.  Fun to learn and easy to make. Use these rickrack flowers on your small gifts, or make designs on fabric with several flowers. We will have instructions for other ribbon embroidery flowers within the next couple of weeks.

Have a great week!
