ribbon embroidery

ribbon flower stitch 2




                                   
 this is another flower stitch done using 6mm nylon ribbon..


                                   
take ribbon of required length and needle it at one and and knot at the other....
very importantly seal the ends using a lighter and press gently with your fingertips on both the ends... this prevents your ribbon from worning out....


                                       
take out the needle piercing the fabric from the center and pull it gently without spoiling the fabric


   
hold the ribbon with your fingertips , fold and insert the needle over the ribbon as illustrated in the figure. Make it gentle or else your ribbon will torn.....this makes one petal of your flower..

 complete other petals.....

 finished work looks like this.....




 happy embroidery...

ribbon embroidery


Ribbon flower stitch



for today, this flower is done using 6 mm nylon ribbon...u can also use any kind of ribbons like silk and satin as available....
the stitch is simple straight stitch... but the thing to remember is to avoid any loops and turns in the ribbon as you work..
be cautious that you should not hurt the ribbon anywhere while stitching as it totally makes your work unfair
for the selection of fabric .... use cotton or poly cotton... fabrics like chiffon or crepe.... they don't support this work
lets go to the stitch......
take ribbon of required length and needle it at one and and knot at the other....




very importantly seal the ends using a lighter and press gently with your fingertips on both the ends... this prevents your ribbon from worning out....


take out the needle piercing the fabric from the center and pull it gently without spoiling the fabric

 hold the ribbon with your fingertips and make a straight stitch.. make sure to avoid loops and turns.


Make straight stitches and complete outer layer of the flower




 make the inner layer of the flower with straight stitches with length smaller than the outer layer





final flower looks like this....


                                     


 to complete the stitch on the reverse side of the fabric... make a knot...seal it using a lighter and press with other side of the lighter over the stitches as shown

up and down buttonhole feathered

Beaded up and down buttonhole stitch



hi friends.. today's post is beaded up and down buttonhole stitch....this stitch can be used for neck linings and for decorative stitches.....this looks feathery too..
for this particular i worked daisy flowers in between and filled these flowers using golden purls.......


now, lets go to the stitch....for this u need two strands of metallic thread, glass tubes and a needle of size #11




pierce out the fabric with the needle at the starting point...... and insert just right to the starting point and out down at the mid-point of the two , crating a v shape .....

 then wrap the first stitch down .........


take out the needle and make a parallel stitch ...and without piercing the fabric , pass the needle through the wrap........




take a glass bead and insert the needle right to it and make a stitch of an angle 60 degrees ....
 take out from the center and again make a wrap stitch

 make a parallel stitch as you made for the first set..

 take a glass bead again and do the feather stitch at the opposite direction........




do these set of stitches alternatively and create a feathery line......
hope u enjoy this stitch.....

Oyster flower stitch!



This stitch  looks very beautiful for flower buds especially… this oyster flower stitch has slight variation  which makes the petals…
The stitch starts with a twisted chain….
 Bring the thread from back, then insert the needle at an angle left to it as shown.
  Make twisted loop around the needle and this forms a twisted chain
..
Take the needle out, piercing the fabric, but don’t make the loop so tight.
This time without piercing the fabric pass the thread under the loop as illustrated.

Make a second loop as before, now insert the needle from the bottom of the twisted knot and take it out above the knot .this makes a lazy daisy.Go down the fabric above the second loop.

 This stitch should be slight longer depending on the size of the petal
take the needle  out from the bottom , again make loop under the previous stitch  and the bottom knot.. this time you are not piercing the fabric… don’t make this so tight or too loose. Just weave under the two stitches in a circular motion .. make three to five rounds  and finally  finish the stitch under  the petal as shown

 this stitch makes one petal. continue with multiple petals....

The final flower looks like this.
I outlined the flower with bullion knot




hope u love this..
i would like hear your comments
