Silk Ribbon Embroidery Needlework Crafts Fun

Ribbon embroidery is unique embroidery that can be done on fleece or felt fabric as silk ribbon embroidery needlework craftswell as moire and cotton. It is best worked with silk ribbon because the silk has more flexibility than polyester or similar ribbon.

If you already do thread embroidery, ribbon embroidery has a few of the same stitches, but projects can be completed faster in ribbon than in thread. This is a fun needlework crafts project that brings out the artistry and allows for personal style. This violet is made with the ribbon stitch and a couched ribbon stitch, and these instructions can be used for a lady slipper or other flowers that have two petals up and three down.

Start needlework crafting for the new year, and learn silk ribbon embroidery as a new craft.

See you soon.

I've never tried ribbon embroidery. I have added ribbons and shells and other unique items to needlepoint projects. Using ribbon to embroider sounds like fun. I'll give it a try...Thanks. Keep Stitchin'...
